Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

We have been working in collaboration with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The whole school participated in music workshops over a two-week period which culminated in 6 students being selected to perform at The Northern Trust and at The Royal Festival hall.

It was a great experience for pupils and hopefully something we will be able to do again next year!

Following our collaboration with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra this month 6 students were selected to perform alongside children from Garrat Park at the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank. The boys played in front of an audience of over 2000 people as part of the annual Wandsworth Schools’ Music event. (https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/123986-wandsworth-schools-music-brighter-sound-2019-2019). 

We are so proud of the hard work and dedication that went into a performance that brought the crowd to it’s feet. Well done to all involved.

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.
