Orchard Park High School

Year 7 are Brilliant!

Our Year 7 Brilliant Club scholars graduated from their programme last week.

Our Ofsted report has been released and can now be shared with our community. The evidence gathered during the inspection suggests that the inspection grade might be outstanding if a graded (section 5) inspection were carried out now. Therefore, Ofsted will return within 12-24 months to conduct a full inspection.

Thank you to every member of staff, every parent, every Governor and our Trust for the part they play in supporting the aims of the school. To our students, thank you for giving your best: you are wonderful.

The report is an accurate reflection of our school, and we are both pleased and proud that this was recognised by the inspection team. The link to the report is here:

Our Year 7 Brilliant Club scholars graduated from their programme last week. Thank you to Mr Afriye for facilitating the experience. The theme for the programme this year was ‘Music with a message: understanding America through song’. The students received seven tutorial lessons with their PhD tutor and wrote an essay (minimum of 1500 words) for their final assignment. All the students passed and attended a graduation ceremony at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Huge credit to all the students who also spoke confidently about their experiences and the skills they have acquired. Well done to Kody, Eleanor, Ayanna, Micah, Shay, Marie, Faustus, Niall, Adonis, Lakshman, Logan and Rosie.

In our sport’s news, the Year 7 and Year 8 Netball teams played against Archbishop Tenison's. The Year 7 team showed strong defence preventing the opposition from scoring, going on to win 3-0. Captain Shalika was picked as the player of the match. The Year 8 team also won their game. However, both schools were closely matched in ability with the score reflecting this at 7-6. A special shout out goes to Khyanna, who was injured in the second quarter and battled on when her team had no substitutes, Amara who held her calm against a feisty centre, and Kelly who was picked as the player of the match.
