Tatler Schools Guide 2019

Orchard House features in Tatler magazine’s Schools Guide to the top prep and public schools in the UK.

‘Getting my kids into Orchard House has been an absolute dream,’ says a mother. Each morning, the streets of Chiswick turn into a sea of blue jumpers, scooters and dogs; there’s a real villagey, local vibe here. To be in for a chance, it’s names down at birth (or even before), and last year’s leavers won more than 15 scholarships – to the likes of Downe House, St Paul’s and Latymer Upper. Maths is impressive and technology is embraced, with compulsory iPads from Year 5. Head Maria Edwards is a keen sportswoman and last year the Year 4 football team enjoyed an unbeaten season. Pupils are bright and enthusiastic; there’s enough whooping and cheering in Friday ‘recognition’ assemblies to bring the house down. ‘The children are incredibly happy, and the rest follows,’ says a parent.

Our Ethos

Every child can learn to fly

Our outstanding results repeatedly show that all children can learn to fly, regardless of early learning ability.

Great minds think for themselves; nurturing individuality is at the heart of our teaching. We believe tailor-made teaching opens up young minds to endless possibilities, encouraging them to think creatively and form their own ideas.

Our pupils mostly call it having fun.
We call it being the best they can be.
