Orchard Meadow is located in Blackbird Leys on the outskirts of Oxford. We proud to be a diverse school with high ambitions and expectations, which is reflected in our school values and curriculum.

Everything we do is values driven and linked to PRIDE – our school motto. Learn more about our ‘PRIDE’ values here and see some examples of our students’ many achievements on the pages of this site. Every day we want pupils to feel proud of themselves and what they can offer their community as active, enquiring, compassionate citizens.
