RPA Girls Football team - how far can they go?

There has been amazing success on the football field for the Year 7 & 8 football team. The U/13 were crowned borough champions last term and the U/12 team are now in the last 32 of the National Cup after a wet and muddy win against Ashlyns School! They won 9-2 with a special mention for double hat trick striker, Shannon. However, it was a team effort with the whole team pressing without the ball and showing real skill with it. Congratulations to Brianna G-L, Shannon S, Imogen D, Lucy T and Maja H, Eadie A, Alba T F, Georgia P, Tilly G M, Maddie T and Sofia K.

RPA launches new website

We are delighted to introduce our new website which features improved navigation, visuals and information. The top navigation bar remains but you will also find the key areas of the academy via the main homepage buttons: Learning & Teaching, Calendar and Term Dates, Academy Tours, Extracurricular Activity, Prospectus and Sixth Form. Look out for the RPA satchels at the bottom of the page too which give fast access to Term Dates, Show My Homework, Uniform, Ofsted and Vacancies. We are also keen to keeping everyone updated with what we are doing in school so the Home Page houses our Twitter Feed and News Feed so keep abreast of what is going on by bookmarking our website or following us at @richmondparkac. We hope that the navigation on the website is easy to understand but don't forget, if all else fails, use the search function which you can find in the top right hand corner of this website.
