The Dukes Family

Together we're extraordinary

Being part of the Dukes Education family has benefits. There are programmes and opportunities available to your children that wouldn’t otherwise be possible from a single school. For example:

Dukes debating

A chance for children to develop their critical thinking and communication skills by participating in debates on important topical issues.

Poetry Together

A beautiful initiative where children memorise a poem and then meet with elderly citizens to share poetry over afternoon tea.

Dukes diploma

Awarded to Year 11 and Year 13 students who complete independent learning and super curricular enrichment activities. Along with excellent academic results and personal development, this additional qualification enhances our students’ skills in the eyes of universities and employers.

Excursions and events

Opportunities for excursions and events with students from other schools. This could include humanitarian trips, or cultural and sporting tours to other countries.

Professional Governance

Dukes Education has gathered some of the leading educational minds onto it’s board of directors and educational advisory board. Orchard House School will benefit from the expertise of Libby Nicholas, Mark Bailey, David Goodhew and others.
