Richard Atkins Primary School

New Park Road, London SW2 4JP


We are looking to appoint outstanding teachers to inspire, motivate and challenge our pupils to learn, achieve and exceed their potential.

Richard Atkins Primary School is a wonderful vibrant and inclusive two form entry Primary School and Nursery in the heart of Lambeth which Ofsted described as having “an impressive climate for learning”, where “pupils are keen to share their achievements and are proud of their school” (Ofsted 2017) . We have fantastic rail, tube and bus links, superb views across the Capital and easy access to London’s historical, cultural and gastronomical delights. Situated in beautiful Victorian building at the top of Brixton Hill our school has proudly served our wonderfully socially, culturally and ethnically diverse community since 1897.

At Richard Atkins, we empower children to achieve excellence in all that they do; setting them on a life of infinite possibility where they understand just how big their world can be and know that they are their own creators.  With a purpose driven, high quality provision; we endeavour to foster fundamental values including growth, integrity, courage, excellence, curiosity and empowerment. We are a warm, vibrant and inclusive school constantly striving to enhance the teaching provision and learning experiences of all.

In addition to maintaining high standards across the curriculum, our dedicated team make it their job to harness and encapsulate the personal strengths of each child; from music to martial arts we work hard to build a curriculum around the child in order to challenge and enthuse each of our pupils and to inspire their curiosity and their courage to succeed.

We are an outward looking School and have built strong local partnerships in order that we can co-raise principled young people and to expose them to learning that has meaning far beyond school life. We particularly value the support of our committed parents and carers and work in close partnership with them and the wider community to ensure the best possible outcomes for all our pupils.

We value and invest in the professional development of all our staff through effective, personalised CPD programmes to enhance and develop their knowledge and skills. We are also proud to play a leading role within the Windmill Cluster of Schools with whom we share ideas, resources and expertise in order to develop staff and facilitate the highest outcomes in attainment and aspiration for our pupils and the wider community.

Our pupils are an absolute delight; visitors always comment on how polite, respectful and welcoming our pupils are and we are extremely proud of each and every one of them!
