Welcome To Orchard Mead Academy

Orchard Mead Academy is proud to be a member of The Mead Educational Trust which, led by Rushey Mead Academy, has an established national profile for excellence in teaching, leadership and student outcomes.

We are proud to serve a uniquely diverse community in the North Eastern outskirts of the City of Leicester, in our larger than average 11-16 mixed comprehensive school which benefited from a £19m rebuild as part of the national Building Schools for the Future programme.

Orchard Mead Academy shares the ethos, vision and values of TMET which is for each and every member of the school community to Make A Positive Difference. Through our work in classrooms, British Values permeate the academy and are a lived reality.
