Our Ethos

The Richmond Park Principles

Richmond Park Schools strive to provide the very best education for our students. Each of our schools is unique and have their own identity, but they share our common aims and values which are based on the British style of education. Everything that we do within our schools links back to these core principles and they are the golden thread that informs all of our judgments and decision making.

The following Richmond Park Principles guide our schools

  • English language medium

    The majority of teaching is delivered in English with the aim of improving students' mastery of the English language.
  • Achievement

    Our students achieve their full potential and beyond their own expectations.
  • Pastoral care

    Our students enjoy a safe and nurturing environment where they are provided with excellent guidance and pastoral support.
  • Curriculum

    We provide as diverse a range of subjects as possible to satisfy the curiosity of our students.
  • Character

    We develop independent, confident, respectful and resilient individuals with strong values and a true sense of community responsibility.
  • Skills

    We promote curious thinkers who love learning and acquiring new skills and who will be able to quickly adapt to a rapidly changing future.
  • Extra-curricular activities

    We believe that teamwork, resilience, self-improvement, focus, and discipline can all be developed through music, sport, the arts, outdoor activities and expeditions.
  • People

    We will attract the best people to work in our schools and provide training and support to retain them and enable them to develop their practice and deliver the Richmond Park education.
  • Excellent pathways

    Our students leave us with excellent onward opportunities.

We believe our Principles match those of a British education as defined by organisations such as the Council of British International Schools (COBIS), and British Schools Overseas (BSO).
