Headteachers Welcome

At St Richard Gwyn, we aim to offer the best possible education through a broad and stimulating curriculum, a wealth of activities beyond the classroom and outstanding pastoral care. Students make excellent progress and achieve strong exam results, due to our high expectations. We have a relentless focus on academic success and we understand the important part that it plays in developing an aspirational future for our students. We are continually looking to raise standards by improving learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. We are always looking to develop our practice to ensure our students make excellent progress. Our committed and hard-working staff are keen to keep up-to-date with the latest research in teaching and learning, often leading developments in their respective areas. This allows us to give our students broad and enriching experiences that build on the skills that they need to lead purposeful and fulfilling lives.
