ABOUT ORCHARD LEA JUNIOR SCHOOL
We are a two form entry junior school situated in Fareham, Hampshire. At present, we have 240 children on roll with nine class teachers, a teaching deputy head and a head teacher. We have an additional class in Year 5 due to an increased intake. We also have a fantastic support team who work closely to assist the children and teaching staff.
We are very fortunate to benefit from extensive grounds with two playgrounds, a basketball court, an outside work area, a conservation area and a large field.
We are dedicated to giving our children the best education whilst equipping them with the skills to become well rounded independent individuals.
