Richmond Academy is a large 2 form entry Primary School in Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey. The school is undergoing an enriching transformation under the ‘strong and inspirational leadership’ of The Stour Academy Trust. The school was recently inspected by Ofsted (February 2019) where it was highlighted that "Officers and trustees of The Stour Academy Trust have high expectations and are relentless in securing the necessary improvements. They are systematically reversing past weaknesses and creating a culture of achievement in the school."
Working in a collaborative model, Richmond Academy is part of the Swale Hub of the Trust, joining two further Swale schools, Thistle Hill Academy and Lansdowne Primary School. All Academies in the Trust share the same core values and ethos; raise standards and address under performance whilst making sure that the children are at the heart of every decision. Through the effective use of Hubs, the Trust’s aim and ambition is to create a network of outstanding schools that thrive through collaboration and interaction.
The recent Ofsted report also highlighted,“The headteacher has brought stability and a renewed sense of ambition to the school. She has won the confidence of staff, pupils and many parents with her clarity of vision and openness.”
