Orchard School Events' List

We have decided, for the moment, to issue a calendar to cover the events scheduled for the Autumn Term only rather than for the whole of the school year. More dates will be added to the calendar during the year.

 

Last updated 24th September 2021

 

Key: Green = Term dates, reports and Parents' Evenings.

Red = GCSE and exams. Purple = general. Blue = sport.
