Here at Orchard Head, we aspire to be a happy, vibrant and successful school community. We believe in laying the foundations on which children can build their futures. Our staff work hard to instil an early love for learning; they aim to capture and nurture it, enabling our children to grow into confident, independent and successful individuals.

Our curriculum is designed to equip children with the knowledge, understanding and basic skills that they will need as they continue their learning journey through primary education and beyond. We value the development of our children’s personal, social and academic skills, firmly believing that these will help them to achieve success in all aspects of their future lives as citizens in modern Britain.
