Education in the Uttoxeter area is provided through a three tier structure of First, Middle and High Schools.
The Uttoxeter catchment area is served by twelve first schools, three middle schools and one High School, Thomas Alleyne’s.
When your child leaves Richard Clarke First School, they have a choice of schools to go to within the 3-tier system, although we traditionally feed into Oldfields Hall Middle School, where our children have priority.
Oldfields Hall Middle School
‘My vision of Oldfields Hall Middle School is a school based on strong principles. A school where all members of our community are valued. A school where passionate teachers provide engaging, interesting lessons to pupils they care about. A school where pupils are happy and eager to learn and contribute to our community. A school that is civilised and well-ordered and a school where parents/carers are valued partners in ensuring that all of our pupils achieve.’

The Richard Clarke First School is an associate member of the Uttoxeter Learning Trust.
The Uttoxeter Learning Trust has been on an incredible journey from April 2017 when the 3 founding schools started the Multi Academy Trust. They have since grown with 5 more local schools and now consist of 8 good and outstanding schools:
- Thomas Alleyne’s High School
- Oldfields Hall Middle School
- Windsor Park Middle School
- Ryecroft Middle School
- Picknalls First School
- Hutchinson Memorial School
- All Saints First School
- The Richard Clarke First School
The Uttoxeter Learning Trust consists of First, Middle and High Schools, some of which are small, rural schools (some Church of England) which form our all-through educational family. Our unique individual school nature continues but we support each other and provide excellent teaching and learning, outstanding extra-curricular activities and a friendly, safe and caring educational environment.
We continue to look for other like-minded locally geographic partners so that we can develop our educational offer further. We have all found that working together for the benefit of all children in and around Uttoxeter has really focused us on designing, delivering and continually evolving the education we can offer. We firmly believe in the vision of delivering the best education from the ages of 3-18 in a seamless 3 tier system.
We strive to live up to our motto ‘Inspired Teaching, Inspiring Children.’
