How we calculate term dates:

The school term and holiday dates for 2018/19 are based on DfES Circular 7/90: Management
of the School Day and are within the set term times from Wandsworth Local Authority.

Our school timetable allows us to exceed the recommended hours of teaching time required across the academic year and also takes into account our learners’ special educational needs. Our Inset days ensure robust continued professional development required to provide highly skilled and trained staff members according to the school’s development planning cycle.

Orchard Hill College Academy Trust and the Governing body have responsibility for setting the term dates. The term dates for our school may be different than other local authority schools, academies and free schools.

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.
