Richard Challoner School

Consultation - Christ the Redeemer Catholic Education Trust

You will be aware that we have been working behind the scenes over the last twelve months to form a new Catholic Academy Trust in Kingston and Richmond. I am delighted that we are now ready to take the next step and move to formally consulting all stakeholders.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our schools to come together as one Catholic community to grow and develop Catholic education in Kingston and Richmond and to make sure we move forward together for the benefit of future generations.


Initially, parents, students and staff at Richard Challoner School will see very little change from how things are at the moment. This is mainly due to the fact that we are already an academy and therefore most of the changes around moving from a maintained school to an academy are already in place.


As the trust grows and develops there will be more opportunities for our young people and staff as we work in collaboration with other local Catholic schools whilst always maintaining and protecting our unique identity as individual schools.


I see this as an exciting opportunity for all of us as we endeavour to provide an extraordinary Catholic education for your sons and daughters.


I have attached two documents that you might find useful but please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.


Yours sincerely,


Sean Maher​
