The Orchard Primary School is a popular school with parents and this has resulted in us being an over subscribed school with long waiting lists.
We follow the London Borough of Hounslow admission policy and parents of pupils who wish to apply for a place at the school should contact the School Admission Team in the Education Department of the London Borough of Hounslow.
There have been important changes for the admission criteria for community primary schools in Hounslow from September 2012. Admission for places will be governed by the following criteria:
