If you are considering sending your son or daughter to join us, I would like to assure you that as a school primarily established to serve the needs of a highly mobile military community, we are experts in ensuring that children settle quickly in our positive and supportive school community. Our Learning Leaders and tutoring system give targeted attention to all of our students and our curriculum, in most cases, has the flexibility to be able to respond to individual needs.
Each of our schools has a Mobility Coordinator whose role is to ensure that your son/daughter transfers to us with the least possible impact on their continued education. Below are a range of documents that will help you make your decision and application. If we can help in any way, please let us know.

Where can I purchase uniform?
King Richard School has a uniform shop on site where you can purchase uniform. You will need to bring cash with you to purchase uniform, as there is no card facility. It may be useful to bring black sport shorts and plain white polo tops with you on your posting, as these items are readily available in the UK. School shoes must be plain black, this includes any logos. For more details on uniform please check the website.
