I'm doing some research on orchard house, CBPP and Heathfield for my daughter. And the exit result for 2017-2018 was significantly worse than the previous years, like less than half of the usual proportion having progressed to the very selective secondaries. I think I heard that there were some teachers leaving around that time, but I'm not actually sure if it's true and if it was the cause. I like the school but find it hard to decide on that school without understanding what happened and knowing that it's not going to happen again and again....

Maybe someone can help me understand...!

Thank you

Orchard House is a non selective school so the results are going to be different every year. Unlike some other schools in the area, they do not cream off the most academic. My DS attends and is very happy, lots of sport and this year, the children in his Y6 class have done very well with many getting into the top academic schools. I haven't known the teachers to leave mid year unless they are pregnant but there are lots of male teachers too.
