Welcome to Orley Farm School

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our exciting school. We hope that you will enjoy the snapshot of school life that this website gives.

It provides an outline of the journey that we want all our children to make as they progress through their Orley Farm career.

On that journey, our aim is to inspire our children with a love of learning, to encourage them to grow in confidence, to be inquisitive explorers in their studies, to be creative thinkers and doers, to be energetic in their approach to all things and to become self-motivated towards the success they deserve.


Focus on the journey, not the destination.
Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
Tim Calvey, Headmaster

These quotes are close to my heart and form the current theme for my assemblies.  Childhood in this fast moving world appears to be getting shorter and I believe that the lessons learnt, whilst in these formative years, need to stand the test of time and become foundations in the young adults of tomorrow. Orley Farm School is blessed with an extensive and well-resourced site.  Our forty acres of land and specialist facilities support the learning of all children and all subject areas.  We are over 160 years old and our £11 Million refurbishment plan is aimed to ensure another 160 years!  The children and staff join me in offering a warm invitation to come and find out more.  We look forward to seeing you!
