“Inspiring Lives, Building Futures”

Orchard Park High School is part of the Greenshaw Learning Trust which is a family of schools that have the same values, vision for education and learning, as encapsulated in the Trust’s mission statement: “We are ambitious for our schools and their students. We believe that there is no ceiling on what can be achieved by anyone, regardless of their circumstances or background.”

We pride ourselves in our positive ethos which supports and enhances the personal development and well-being of every individual. As a vibrant learning community, we aim to provide the very best learning opportunities where students are challenged, inspired and encouraged to reach their full potential, regardless of ability. We place high emphasis on respect and positive behaviour which ensures the school is a safe and happy place in which to learn and grow.

Mission statement

We aim to inspire and empower all members of our school community to:

  • Be proud of and serve our school
  • Strive for academic excellence
  • Nurture all gifts, talents and potentials
  • Respect, value and love ourselves and each other
  • Create resilient, lifelong learners ready to take their place as leaders in the world – today, tomorrow and always.

School Expectations

We have high academic expectations, high standards of learning and teaching and a commitment to be the ‘best we can be.’ Students are expected to work hard and to value the opportunities created within and beyond school.

We are an inclusive school with a strong sense of community. A premium is put on courtesy, smart appearance and good conduct. All staff are involved in the pastoral care of students. We also place particular emphasis on our close working relationships with our parents/carers.

Our dedicated and passionate team of well qualified and highly skilled staff provide outstanding teaching whilst developing students’ strengths, nurturing their talents and celebrating their achievements.  We instil in our students a sense of self-worth, personal belief and a positive growth-mind-set.

We look forward to welcoming our new students as we support them to flourish and grow into successful, aspirational and accomplished young adults - ready to take their place in the world.

In addition to applying on the local authority (LA) application form, this school requires you to complete a supplementary information form (SIF). These supplementary forms seek information which is not collected on the LA application form, but which is needed by the school to enable them to reach a decision on your application. You can collect a SIF from the school or download it from the schools website. SIF should be returned direct to the school and not to the Local Authority. Please note: a SIF will not be considered on its own. You must also include the school as a preference on the Local Authority's common application form.
