The Richmond Primary Academy

We are working to ensure that high expectations and standards serve every pupil within our academy community.

Welcome to our new website

We are delighted to announce that as of today, Friday 1st March 2024, we have become a DRET primary academy. Our new name is “The Richmond Primary Academy” and you can see our new logo on this website.

Vicky Ross, Headteacher and now Principal at The Richmond Primary Academy, said:

“This is such an exciting time for the school. Since my arrival in September 2022, we have been driving school improvements. On our own, this has been like riding on a pushbike. With the DRET team, I feel like I’m going to be driving improvements in a Formula 1 car! 

“The DRET team will provide the extra knowledge and support that our current, small team finds tricky. With the Trust alongside us, we will be able to achieve our goals more effectively and in a much shorter time frame – improving the experience and outcomes for all our children. DRET has a clear vision to help us deliver the high-quality educational experience and amazing extracurricular opportunities that the children need and deserve.” 

Stuart Burns, Chief Executive at DRET, said:

“Everyone at DRET is delighted to welcome The Richmond School to our family of schools.

“I know a lot of hard work has already taken place with this partnership and we are very much looking forward to building on the school’s strengths and providing a world class education for local children.

“We have high ambitions for all our pupils and we are absolutely dedicated to supporting young people in Skegness.”
