Welcome To The Orchard School: A Specialist Arts College
SCHOOL PREPARES FOR "BIG MOVE"
Pupils and staff of The Orchard School are really excited about the move into their new building. The completion date of the "first phase" of the new school is in December, only a few weeks away. When the pupils and staff return to school in January 2008, they will continue their learning in specialist classrooms designed and resourced for pupils of the 21st Century. There will be specialist areas , studios and workshop facilities in Science, ICT, FCT, Design & Technology and Visual Arts. Sporting facilities will be available for pupils in an outstanding Sports Hall and new performance and production facilities in a beautiful Music and Drama suite. The "creative feature" is a wonderful amphitheatre built onto the Music and Drama suite for outside performance. After months of living and working on a building site the reality of the new building is creating much excitement.
