The Orchard School is a Foundation Special School. We cater for 80 pupils who have behaviour and learning difficulties as identified by their Education Health and Care Plans (EHC Plans).

The school caters for primary and secondary aged pupils although they are kept in two separate departments.

Staff at The Orchard are skilled in working with pupils who have a range of difficulties that prevent them from accessing their learning.

We work extremely hard to tailor individual programmes designed to help each pupil develop the skills and behaviours necessary to cope with life in school and beyond school in society, college and the workplace
