I am immensely proud to have the privilege of serving as headteacher of Saint Richard Gwyn Catholic High School, Flint. This website will give you a flavour of what this school is like. We are forward-thinking, vibrant community dedicated to providing a calm and purposeful school environment in which young people have every opportunity to succeed. We give them opportunity to excel academically, on the sporting field and in the arts.

We are an established local school with an excellent reputation, highly regarded in the wider community of Flintshire, which is the catchment for the school. We are a school with faith at its heart; additionally, welcoming those who have other beliefs or none in a spirit of openness and respect.
