I am delighted to welcome you to Orchard Park High School; Orchard Park High School is a warm, happy and high achieving school, located in Shirley, Croydon.
At Orchard Park, it is our vision that every student who belongs to our school community has a better chance of success than if they attended any other school. We are ambitious for our students; when you visit, you’ll find that students are challenged, inspired and encouraged to reach their full potential.
We are desperately proud to offer a safe and caring learning environment with disruption-free classrooms, where students can achieve the very best qualifications and skills, broadening their opportunities for the future.
We create the conditions for our students to become confident in their personality and ability and the best possible version of themselves. We enjoy working with parents and carers to establish a community centred on high performance and excellence, regardless of a child’s starting point.
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.
If you would like to make an appointment with me to see the school in action, please contact my PA on firstname.lastname@example.org
