Orchard Manor is a very special school which currently offers weekly residential placements.  Our students are aged between 3 and 19 years and mostly live in Devon and our neighbouring authorities Torbay and Plymouth.

We offer:

  • Day time education
  • Weekly boarding
  • Our residences operate within the National Minimum standards for Residential Special Schools.

Our aim in class and residence is to provide learning and care which help children to develop important skills and to grow in confidence as individuals.  Everything we do is informed by their individual learning and care needs and we are very proud of what we offer and what our young people can achieve.  

Moving into your new house

We know that moving to somewhere new can be a little daunting for any of us, old or young, so we have put together a little booklet for our new guests called "Welcome to your New House!"  It has lots of useful information in it, from the House Rules to what to do if you need to have a chat to someone.  There is also room for a favourite photo and space to write your favourite things.
