St Richards enjoys extensive community links on a local, national and international level.
Locally we enjoy strong links with our 4 Catholic Primary Schools:
St. Mary Magdalene
St. Mary Star of the Sea
St. Thomas of Becket
Working with them we provide a detailed liaison programme ensuring that transition at eleven is trouble-free.
Locally we also get involved in a range of community projects fundraising and helping out. Our year 10 pupils on their weeks vocational experience placement enjoy working with businesses in the surrounding areas.
We also enjoy extensive links with our Parishes and our local newspaper The Bexhill Observer.
Naturally we have been recognized as a Beacon School, consequently a number of projects we set up annually to share practice with other secondary schools. There are a number of national Charities and Appeals which the pupils support.
Internationally we endeavor to support fundraising projects further afield and we have given enthusiastic support to Jubilee 2000.
Through our community links program, we aim to develop the whole person and we are pleased with the results as many of our pupils continue to support community projects once they have moved on from St Richards.
