ORWELL PARK SCHOOL
Developing a life-long love of learning in a magical setting …. Orwell Park, established in 1867, is a co-educational prep school for day pupils and boarders from 2½ to 13. The outstanding beauty of the grounds and the historic 18th century buildings contribute to an inspiring experience which combines the legacy and the traditions of the past with the dynamism and energy of the present and future. Outstanding facilities include a working Victorian observatory, a walled garden with outdoor pool, a nine-hole golf course, floodlit sports facilities, a library in the mansion house, as well as a new, state of the art outstanding Pre-Prep facility. Boys and girls are given every opportunity to be the best they can be, both in and outside the classroom. High expectations, and learning strategies tailored to the individual child, lead to high levels of attainment. Orwell Park pupils are also involved in a comprehensive activity programme, including: orchestra and various ensembles, chess, community service, skiing, equestrianism, climbing, OPS Challenge (a mini D of E course), camping and campfire fun in the school’s woodlands, Art and DT clubs, Brownies and Blueys (boys’ club), as well as numerous large scale theatrical productions. Boarding is extremely popular at Orwell Park and takes the form of flexible, weekly and full boarding. Pupils choose to board, driven by a desire to enjoy the company of friends once the normal school day is over.
