The Orchard is a unique, happy and inspiring learning environment for four to seven year old children.
We are very proud of the exceptional balance of care and challenge we provide as a school.
We care about all the children as individuals, fostering independence and confidence so that the children are able to say "I can do this!" and enjoy the learning and success they achieve.
Come and visit us to find out more. We look forward to welcoming you and showing you our school.
In the heart of East Molesey Village The Orchard is a community school serving children from East and West Molesey. Hidden behind the old Police Station access is from Hansler Grove or Bridge Gardens.
