In order for students to be academically successful and develop into well rounded individuals the ‘Ricky R’s’ are embedded into lessons, assemblies and the wider fabric of the school.







The behaviour of students at Rickmansworth is outstanding which is testament of our student’s desire to achieve their absolute potential.  The positive attitudes of students can also be attributed to the school’s rewards and consequences policy which can be accessed below along with guidance for uniform.

Students are expected to complete regular homework, all of which is published on Show My Homework, which can be accessed by the Homework Icon on every webpage.  Furthermore, students are encouraged to work independently and have access to a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and GCSE Pod, both of which can also be accessed from icons on all webpages.  Students are also encouraged to maximise the resources available in the library to further their learning.
