Orton School is very grateful for the support and generosity of people from the local community and people and companies in the wider community. Without them many of the wonderful experiences our children enjoy would not be possible. We would like to thank these people for their kindness and a list has been compiled of the projects and the people involved.
HUGE thank yous to Jill Bawden (aka HRH) for her tireless efforts in reaching out to the wider community,obtaining grants,donations and promoting our school and Friends of Orton School for all their hard work in fundraising and organizing such wonderful family events.
The wildlife our nectar bar attracts has been magic this summer, with a variety of butterflies and lots of bees. Our soup for the harvest festival included vegetables from our garden too.
