After two years of disruption from the pandemic GCSE exams returned this year. We are proud of the way in which our students rose to this challenge.

Through hard work, commitment and resilience students tackled these exams and achieved another set of excellent results, this hard work and dedication to their studies resulted in 56% of pupils achieving a 4 + and 34% achieving a 5+ in English and Maths. Students once again performed significantly well in English, Maths and Science as well as in Events, Hospitality, PE and Art.

'This set of students and results typifies everything that makes Orchards Academy an excellent learning environment. Despite the disruption to their education the character, resilience and determination of these students to achieve is nothing short of exceptional.

All of the staff at Orchards Academy are very proud of the students and wish them all the best for their next chapter of their education. '

Mr Lazenby, Headteacher


The aim of Orchards Academy is to work with students, parents and the wider community to provide a safe, supportive and stimulating learning environment where high expectations and consistent challenge enable our students to achieve academically, build social and emotional intelligence and make a positive contribution to society.
