I am delighted to welcome you to Orchard Park High School; a vibrant, dedicated and welcoming 11-16 academy.
Orchard Park is an ambitious academy located in Shirley, Croydon. We believe that every student who belongs to our school community has a better chance of success with us than if they attended any other school. We want the absolute best for our students; when you visit, you’ll find that students are challenged, inspired and nurtured to reach their full potential.
We expect all staff, students and parents to embrace our four core values – Integrity, Excellence, Collaboration and Drive. We want our students to leave school as determined, self-confident and successful young adults with a real understanding of their own identity.
We are a proud member of the Greenshaw Learning Trust, a ‘family’ of like-minded schools, that collaborate to provide mutual support, share their good practice and learn from each other, whilst retaining and developing their own distinctive character.

A huge thank you to our local Sainsbury's in West Wickham who donated 60 mince pies to boost staff morale today and kick start December off with a festive treat for everyone! @sainsburys
Thanks to our brilliant students and staff for another busy but great week. Our Character Ambassadors have now been announced, our GLT online curriculum is in full action and two weeks of Year 11 mocks are complete! Well done everyone. Have a great weekend!
