Welcome to Richmond Methodist Primary School

Welcome to our school website aimed at providing you with the necessary information about our school.

We are a large and friendly Methodist School in the market town of Richmond, North Yorkshire.

We believe that every child is special and that all children can succeed given the opportunity. Our staff are therefore committed to ensuring our pupils receive quality teaching and the best care, guidance and support so that they may reach their full potential in all areas. Our standards are set high and our school was judged by Ofsted in February 2017 to be "good" overall.

We have a particular passion for sport and music. The opportunities that we offer our pupils reflect this, with pupils taking part in numerous sporting and music activities and competitions. In addition, our pupils have access to a wide range of after-school clubs aimed at broadening their experiences.

We also believe that education is a partnership between home and school and a close working relationship is vital to maximise the outcomes for our children. If you need to discuss any aspect of your child’s education then please contact their class teacher in the first instance.

We welcome interest from prospective parents and are happy for you to visit the school at any time.


Mrs Gardner



Values and Ethos

Every school has a unique identity and here at Richmond Methodist everything we do is underpinned by our school ethos of 'for all'. 

We have identified the following values by which the children, the staff and the governors would like to live by.


Arkengarthdale Primary School

Separated by 15 miles and 25 minutes by car, our two schools work closely together. The schools share the same leadership team and have the same commitment to high quality education, whilst retaining distinctive characteristics and separate governing bodies. Both schools are committed to ensuring that each child feels happy and secure and that high quality relationships are at the centre of the lives of the school. Both schools are generously staffed and benefit from highly motivated, well-trained and totally committed adults.   

To find out more about Arkengarthdale C of E Primary School and what it might be able to offer your child, visit the school’s website HERE or contact the headteacher HERE.

Swaledale Alliance

We are proud to be one of the leading schools in the Swaledale Alliance.
