Headteacher's welcome


I am delighted to introduce myself as the new Headteacher at Orchard Meadow from September 2019. It has been fantastic to start getting to know staff, pupils and parents and I have already been hugely impressed by the positive way everyone has started the new term.

Teaching and learning excellence is at the core of everything we aim to do and we are committed to providing a challenging, enriching and inspiring learning experience for all of our pupils, based on a knowledge-rich curriculum.

Orchard Meadow pupils will learn to be resilient, independent learners who are driven to achieve excellence and through this will feel pride in themselves and their community. Learn more about our ‘pride’ values and see some examples of our students’ many achievements in the pages of this site.

Above all, we want our learners to be happy, healthy and feel inspired by the joy of learning. Every day at Orchard Meadow is an opportunity to find out something new, be creative, be challenged and, most importantly, feel valued.    

I hope you will enjoy browsing our website. We warmly welcome any feedback, queries and questions as well as enquiries about visiting the school. Please see the ‘contact us’ page for more information.

Warm regards

William Power
