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.
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!
Was-salaams / Kind regards,
Mr Hoosen Randeree (Interim Headteacher)
