Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

Richmond Hill is about average in size for this type of school, but the number of pupils on roll is increasing steadily year on year. Some new building work to increase the size of the school is due to commence shortly. The great majority of pupils have severe learning difficulties, with about one pupil in ten experiencing very profound difficulties and challenging behaviour. These pupils are relatively new in this school, but their numbers are increasing. The proportion of pupils with autistic spectrum disorders is also increasing steadily, and is now approximately 60% of the school population. There are nearly three times as many boys as girls which is typical for this type of school. Most pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, with Asian/Asian British - Pakistani pupils forming the largest group in the school, and Black/Black British African and White British forming the next two largest groups. Pupils from eight other ethnic groups form the rest of the school population and nearly 70% of the school speak English as an additional language, which is a much higher proportion than normally found. Around one third of the pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals, which is about twice the national average. The school has had National Healthy Schools status since 2004 and has recently been reawarded with Investors in Families.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria
This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.
Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.
For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.
This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.
