Today matters.

Orange Tree Online (or OTO, for short) is an online school for ages 11-18 designed from the ground up for learners who struggle with mainstream, traditional education.

Change the system, not the children.

A mental health crisis, a record number of school absences, a lack of skills beyond passing outdated exams. Look around and it's not hard to see an education system fraying at the edges. At OTO we believe it's not the children who are at fault, but the system. That's why we do what we do. To give them the education they not only deserve, but desperately need.

Our vision

Not just another online school.

An inclusive education that puts your needs first.

OTO combines a fun, challenging curriculum with personalised learning, mentorship, and a focus on mental health and wellbeing. We have years of experience helping children thrive outside of mainstream education.

Our Story

Personalised learning

Every child is different. We customise every learner's experience at OTO from individual learning pathways to specific academic needs and interests.

Wellbeing and flourishing

We believe in a holistic education that treats mental health as seriously as academic achievement. At OTO, we nurture well rounded citizens.

Designed for ALL learners

Tired of a one-size-fits-all model of education? OTO has been designed so that the school works around the child, not the other way around.

We find it devastating to hear how many children are struggling with their schools and are prevented from reaching their potential.
