How we calculate term dates:

The school term and holiday dates for 2022/23 are based on dates agreed by the London Inter Authority Admissions Group (LIAAG). These dates 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 with extended hours including breakfast clubs, after school clubs and play schemes. Our term dates and school hours also accounting for 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. 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.
