Our schools are diverse in their make-up and welcome children and young people from all backgrounds. Our Head Office is at Watermill School in Stoke-on-Trent.

 

The Orchard Community Trust is fully committed to improving the life chances of all children, wherever they may be. This moral obligation, our mission, does not end at the school gates, within our own Local Authorities, or even within our own country. Where we have the capacity to make a difference, we are morally bound to do so and would wish to make an impact  on the lives the lives and education of children and young people within and beyond the Trust by reaching out to other schools for the sharing of best practice and by offering expertise and support.
