Welcome

"Be the best you can be"

The Orchard’s Academy caters for children aged 4-11 with a wide range of needs, from moderate to complex with specialisms in cognition and learning, communication and interaction, physical and sensory and children with complex medical conditions.

We believe that high quality teaching underpins the children’s learning outcomes and are continually working towards developing an outstanding curriculum with our highly-qualified team of teaching staff.

As an academy and part of the inspirational Dunham Trust, places for the school are funded by the EFSA with Element Three in line with existing Local Authority funded levels.
