OPEN EVENT UPDATE

Our Open Day on Tuesday 7th December has been cancelled due to the government COVID-19 updates and rise in cases.

We aim to deliver an event in the Spring Term and information will be published here closer to the time.

Name Agreed for New Special Free School

The name for the new special Free School in Croydon has been agreed as Addington Valley Academy. John Prior, Executive Headteacher/Deputy CEO of Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust said “we decided on the name because it fitted the location where the school will be based as well as being associated with the community we are joining.”  The School will open in September 2020 within a new, purpose-built building which is being built under the Free School programme.

I think your school and staff are amazing – you have wowed me!
