The Richard Clarke First School is a small, happy, friendly, rural community school, situated in Abbots Bromley. The village itself has a rich cultural heritage and the school takes its name from a local man who made his fortune in London in the 1600s.  Today, the endowment fund still supplements the school budget and his legacy continues. We are members of the Uttoxeter Learning Trust and have strong partnerships with schools in the area.


Our school motto is TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) and we celebrate individual success whilst fostering team spirit.  We pride ourselves on our positive, vibrant and caring ethos.


The staff at our school are caring, experienced and committed to meeting the individual needs of every child, and to creating a happy and secure environment.


Our children enjoy a rich curriculum that is broad and balanced and is enhanced by a fantastic enrichment programme to cater for all children’s interests and learning styles.  Every day is packed full of joy, friendship and exciting learning.


We have high standards, we continually strive for excellence and are proud of our many successes.  OFSTED (2017) said Richard Clarke is a good school which continues to go from strength to strength.  In fact, Richard Clarke has been judged consistently good with outstanding features since OFSTED began!
