At the Jo Richardson School, our motto “Success for All” underpins everything that we do at the school and puts the students’ achievements at the centre of our vision. We have a commitment to the highest academic standards combined with a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities aimed at enhancing the opportunities offered to all our students.
Working with our colleagues as part of the Southern Consortium, sixth form subject staff are well qualified to teach A level and vocational courses and excel in bringing out the best in all the students they work with. They are dedicated to working hard and providing a high level of professional teaching. There are staff responsible for the mentoring and care of students through a tutor group system and a range of opportunities for one-to-one guidance and support.
We want our students to feel happy, secure and enjoy coming to school. We are committed to forming positive relationships with parents and keeping them informed of students’ targets and progress. Alongside our extensive range of A level courses we also offer practical, work-related courses. There are opportunities for community service, young enterprise, sport, music, drama, university visits, careers advice and plenty of social events. We provide a programme of academic events for students to improve their study skills, chances of getting to university and self-confidence.
