Description of the school

St Richard’s Catholic College is a specialist college in science with mathematics and information communication technology (ICT). It is a very settled, over- subscribed school which benefits from strong parental support. The vast majority of students are Roman Catholics. Most are from White British backgrounds and very few have English as an additional language. Some of the parishes served by the college are in areas which suffer from high levels of disadvantage. However, in comparison to the national context, most students’ economic circumstances can be described as broadly average. The proportion of students entitled to free school meals is below average, as is the percentage with learning difficulties or disabilities.
