Welcome to Richmond Park Academy

Richmond Park Academy (RPA) is an inclusive, dynamic 11-18 secondary school located in the London Borough of Richmond on the boundary with the London Borough of Wandsworth. We have a student body of close to 900 diverse and talented students all working hard as individuals and as a school body to "find their remarkable". As a school we have a relentless approach to the improvement of teaching and learning which is exemplified by our commitment to after school, Saturday school and residential teaching programmes. However, enrichment programmes are a fundamental part of the fabric of our school. Our extracurricular programmes are second to none and our July enrichment week, World Week, is an important part of the RPA learning experience.
