Leavers Hoodies 2022

Some very exciting news, the Leavers ‘22 hoodies are now available to be ordered!

All orders and payments will be handled externally by Leavers Hoodies co. therefore no orders can be placed through the school.

To place an order you need to visit our Orchards School Shop by following the link below.

Here, you will need to select your hoodie colour, size and then enter a suitable name/nickname to appear on the sleeve, should you want one.

The deadline for final orders will be Monday 13th June at 11:00pm – Once this has passed, no further orders can be taken.

All hoodies will then be delivered to school and handed out on Monday 18th July to then be worn for the final week of school.


Throughout Year Six, various accolades will be awarded to children who have really impressed us. These include:

  • Postcards of Excellence which get posted home outlining the achievement.
  • Year Six Superstars who receive a badge and take part in Hall’s Happy Hour which involves baking cupcakes to take home.    

Homework booklets have been sent home with the children. This is a geography/general knowledge based project that we are sure the children will enjoy. Please can the children complete the activities on a weekly basis and then bring the booklet back as they complete each task. Raffle tickets will be awarded for exceptional effort. These are drawn half-termly for a £5 WH Smith gift voucher.

MyMaths homework will be set on a Tuesday and will be due in the following Tuesday. As this is a core curriculum subject this is a compulsory task.

Many thanks for your cooperation
