It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Orchard Academy, a proud founder member of the East Midlands Academy Trust. I am proud to say with certainty that on a daily basis at Orchard you will find a positive, family atmosphere in which we develop friendly, welcoming, confident and independent young people.
Whilst the coronavirus pandemic has brought with it many challenges, we are proud to have been 'open' every school day since the begninning - supporting our critical worker parents and vulnerable children. We are hugely proud of our community's collective approach to these difficult times, responding to support each other as best as possible. We, in turn, have tried hard at every possible moment to keep parents and carers informed of government decisions, supported with remote education and assured that we are still here for them (even if their children are at home).
