Richmond Hill School is located within a quiet, established residential area on a prime site bordered by parkland yet within easy reach of the town centre.

We were designated a school for primary aged pupils with severe learning difficulties and complex needs in September 2000.

We welcome children and their parents into a small community that can offer a combination of education and care with high levels of staffing that enable us to meet the very special and individual needs of our pupils and their families. Our aim is to provide a warm and caring atmosphere that is a pre-requisite for successful learning but also for the school to be a dynamic, exciting and challenging place to learn.

The school is very spacious and with large classrooms that are fully resourced. In addition we have rooms designated for drama, soft play, multi-sensory lessons, food technology, ICT and a library.
We have a special annex for use by parents with our family worker.

Outside areas include a large playground equipped with bikes, go-karts and scooters, a field with cycle track, climbing equipment, swings, a sandpit, a gardening area and a wooden assault course.
