📖📚📖ORCHARD MEETS LOCAL AUTHOR 📖📚📖
What a fantastic morning our key stage 4 learners had meeting Adam from A. M. Richardson
Adam came to deliver a creative writing workshop and we were honoured for him to launch our creative writing competition! 🖊📖
Adam said “I was thrilled to come and meet the learners today. All were very engaged and showed some excellent use of imagination. I’m really looking forward to returning in December to judge the creative writing competition!” Thanks 😊
We are passionate about creating inspirational opportunities for our learners and a huge credit goes to their GCSE teacher Jodie Bromley for planning such an engaging programme. 👌🏻

Wow...this sounds like a really amazing school. Just what this town needs...something different for those who struggle but can't get into the established sen schools or doesn't cope there. Well done to all staff involved xx
This school actually is really good I know I have had my ups and downs with all teachers . But, to be fairly honest this school opens up my mind to get my head down and work work work. Also this school has given me every little chance to change and behave which my behaviour has 🕙👌💯🤩
We love to see the students with you achieving, thank you for the photos! Vanessa Brown check these out x

Wonderful photos. Jo looks very happy to be with such a brilliant team. Thank you
My son started in September and I was a little nervous to be honest as he usually struggles with change and new situations. But I couldn't be my pleased with how he's settled in. So I'd like to say big thank you to E's teacher's for making him feel so welcome and support him. Its amazing to see him learning! Xx
The orchard schools are amazing, to have my son look forward to going to school is an achievement in itself, even doing his homework is a pleasure to see. I never thought he would ever be this happy. The school has changed his life & mine. Thankyou to every single staff member for helping my son be the person i knew he could be. Your support has been amazing x
I count my blessings every day for this school.❤️
