About Orleans Park School
Orleans Park is a happy, thriving, successful and oversubscribed 11-18 mixed comprehensive that serves its local community in Twickenham with over 1,200 students.
In November 2017, Ofsted recognised that Orleans Park is an outstanding school. They said “Orleans Park excels in all the aspects of provision for its pupils” and we have “established an inspirational teaching and learning environment where pupils can flourish and excel”. Other highlights include “pupils have very positive attitudes to their learning”, they are “keen to learn and take pride in their work. There is a clear sense of enjoyment and willingness to work and pupils have a mature attitude to learning”.
In September 2014 we were delighted to open a Sixth Form which now has over 200 students and has been judged “outstanding” by Ofsted, stating that we are “striving for excellence in all areas and are determined to ensure that all students achieve the best they can”. This new building has given us the opportunity to include a new school hall, a Sixth Form Learning Resource Centre, over 20 classrooms, several ICT rich classrooms, and Sixth Form science rooms, media suite and art studios.
Orleans Park is situated on a 16 acre site close to the River Thames and the centre of Twickenham in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The borough is home to the attractions of Richmond Park, Kew Gardens, Hampton Court Palace and Twickenham Stadium.
We are well served by local transport with several bus routes stopping right outside the school gates and train and tube stations nearby. St. Margarets and Twickenham Train Stations are both within easy walking distance for South Western Railway services and Richmond Station is one mile away for District Line Underground and Overground Services and South Western Railway.
