Hello and welcome to the Orchard County Primary and Nursery School website!  
Confidence in a school comes from knowing what is going on within. It also comes from knowing that the governors and the staff have the children’s best interests at heart. 
 
Orchard County is a hive of activity and this website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. 
 
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly (details on the contact us page) with any queries you may have. 
 
Thank you for visiting.

School Inspections 
 
Orchard County has been inspected by the ETI on three occasions in recent years. During all three inspections, the visiting team of inspectors concluded that, 'In the areas inspected, the quality of education provided was very good and the school is meeting very effectively the educational and pastoral needs of the children; and has demonstrated its capacity for sustained self-improvement.'
