Who are we?

Orchard Park High is a small secondary school in the London Borough of Croydon taking kids from year 7 through to year 11 (KS3 and KS4 only)

The Friends of Orchard Park High is our new Parent Teacher Association group dedicated to supporting the school in raising money to help support all the children at the school.

Why support us?

The cost of living crisis has affected us all - with pressures on all of us and prices rising rapidly.  We were not able to gather enough funds for a prom last year and we're determined that this year 11 cohort will have the chance to celebrate such an important milestone before going on their separate ways to sixth forms across the borough and beyond.

This year 11 group showed amazing resilience when COVID hit during their formative years at the school and they have all worked incredibly hard to bounce back and we know they are on course to demonstrate this in their GCSE performances.  We want to give them the chance to have the amazing leavers party that they have earned over their time at the school.

What will we do with the funds?

The year 11s have already put in money for their prom, but with costs rising everywhere the amount raised so far will barely touch the sides of what it would cost to decorate our hall and provide some entertainment.  If we are lucky enough to go beyond our target, the children want to use the money to thank the amazing year 11 teachers who have gone above and beyond all year to get the children GCSE ready.
