An act of kindness

Thank you to events caterer ‘Dinner Ladies’ for the kind offer to provide nutritious meals for local families in need during this difficult time.
It is acts of kindness such as these that keep communities connected and hopeful. They are offering support to students at Nightingale Community Academy and their families, so if you would like to receive some delicious pre-prepared meals, please contact reception.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
