Games & The Arts
As well as its own artificial grass and tarmac play areas, Orchard House has the use of the nearby Chiswick Back Common and Rocks Lane astro turf. Children are also taken weekly to Acton New Pools and to Brentford Leisure Centre. The school is well equipped with laptops and the latest technology. It also has its own dedicated art teacher and is able to fire ceramics. The music department is led by the director of music; concerts are held regularly in St Michael and All Angels Church. Drama productions are staged at venues such as Chiswick Town Hall.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
The children are loved first and taught second. We believe learning should be exciting and fun, and that children should positively want to come to Orchard House each day. The professional and committed staff respond to each child’s needs rather than being a hostage to league tables: nevertheless our approach leads to very strong academic results.
- Bright, naturally lit and well equipped classrooms. State-of-the-art ICT resources and specialist ICT staff.
- Friendly, homely atmosphere; attention to/respect for each child.
- Very committed teachers – low turnover of staff; many specialist teachers and high academic standards.
- Special needs identified early and appropriate remedial programmes arranged quickly.
- Home-cooked lunches of top quality.
