At Orchard Mead Academy, it is our mission to inspire our pupils to grow and succeed.

Our Orchard Oath of Work Hard, Be Kind, Be Responsible provides a framework for personal conduct and growth for students.   From the moment a student arrives at Orchard Mead Academy, students will be supported and challenged to meet these expectations:

  1. Work Hard – We promote resilience, grit and determination so students learn that success needs hard work and effort
  2. Be kind– We aim to develop respectful, tolerant students who are kind to everyone.
  3. Be Responsible – We encourage students to make a positive difference to themselves and the world around them.

We take pride in our challenging and well-designed curriculum which seeks to give all our students access to a broad, rich and deep education. A significant proportion of our students study the English Baccalaureate set of subjects to GCSE level, highlighting our drive to ensure all students benefit from an academic and enriching curriculum. Alongside traditional subjects, sport, music and the arts are highly valued. All of this allows our students to leave us as well rounded aspirational young people, ready for the challenges the next phase in life brings them.

We are proud of our school community and work tirelessly to provide opportunities for our students to thrive, we want to forge meaningful partnerships with our families and to take our place as a vital part of our student futures. I want to thank you for the support you have shown the school over the last year. The next academic year offers an opportunity for us to reconnect, inspire and enjoy the next steps of Orchard Meads improvement journey. I can’t wait to meet you all and look forward to working together to make a positive difference.

Please look around our website to see what we have to offer, and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
