St Richard's Catholic Primary, Dover











St Richard's Catholic Primary School is rated as a 'Good' academy (Ofsted September 2017). 


St Richard's Primary is a one-form entry school situated near to the town centre of Dover and is over-looked by Dover Castle. It has fairly spacious grounds which include a field, playground, fire pit area, outdoor classroom and adventure playground.


Parents send their children to St Richard's because they want their children to be part of a faith community. Many, but not all are Catholic, and all children and their families are very welcome. Staff are committed, ensuring that the children receive the best care and education.  


The work of the school is based on six Gospel Values:

Love, Kindness, Honesty, Forgiveness, Respect and Hope.


There are two simple school rules:

Love yourself and those around you & Act safely


St Richard's is the only Catholic primary academy in Dover and therefore, children attend the Academy from different parishes. The academy caters for boys and girls of 4+ to 11 years.


Executive Principal: Lisa Huotari
