Welcome to The Orchard Primary School!
Orchard Primary School is a Voluntary Aided Muslim school in Lambeth.
Message from the Headteacher
Orchard is a smaller than average, primary school. We pride ourselves in providing a high standard of teaching and learning, with a personalised approach for all our children. Our aim is to nurture our children’s spiritual, moral, social & cultural development so as to ensure that they become positive citizens who will contribute towards all aspects of society.
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which makes learning fun whilst also aiming to develop our pupils academic levels to the highest standards, in order to ensure outstanding progress and achievement in all areas. To view some of our exciting learning, please click on the link below:
At Orchard we value our strong links and partnerships with our parents and the community at large. We have a number of links with other faith and non-faith schools. Orchard is also a member of the Windmill Cluster of schools.
We invite you to come in and visit our warm and welcoming school!

We are in the process of updating all our admissions records in order to remove any applications which no longer wish to stay on our waiting lists. Moving forward, we will be implementing a new system, to help improve our database. In future all parents who would like their children to remain on the waiting lists will be required to reapply on an annual basis in the summer term.
