Welcome to Orchard School - a preparatory school and nursery, for boys and girls aged 0 - 9 situated in the outskirts of village Barton-le-Clay, south Bedfordshire. Orchard provides the best in education priding itself in teaching children how to learn, finding and nurturing the individual potential and confidence in every child. The aim of the school is to engender a passion for learning, 'to be the best that I can be'. Our pupils develop into well-motivated, balanced children who are considerate, well-mannered, who know the value of hard work and who go on to excel at their next schools.

Thank you to everyone for sponsoring our Fun Run to raise funds for Addenbrookes Teenage Oncology Unit. We exceeded all our expectations by raising an amazing £3,084.12. We are also pleased to report that Max is now making good progress.
We are also pleased to welcome back Prep 4 from their week's residential trip to Caythorpe, Lincolnshire. During assembly, they shared with us some of their exploits, followed by a question and answer session. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to follow them on Twitter particularly the photographs. More on the board in the hall.
We have taken advantage of the forecast of yet more rain to plant our allotment. Our plants were supplied by a company called Rocket Gardens and they have offered to make a 10% donation back to our school for every order that you place with them. Just remember to quote our school code: ORCHARMK454RB when you place your order. Have a look for posters placed around the school or if you need more information, visit www.rocketgardens.co.uk or call 01326 222169.
