London/near London orphanage life, 1988-1996

I've googled "life in london orphanage 1990", "london school system orphanage 1990" etc. I'm sure my google fu is at fault here and would greatly appreciate links and/or suggestions!

I need whatever you can give me on growing up in an orphanage during the nineties and perhaps late eighties. Most pressingly, I need to know about their school system: would they be taught at the orphanage or go to school elsewhere? Especially, how would sex ed be handled? But I'd also like to know other things. What sort of food would they eat? How would illness/injuries be treated? Where would they get clothes from? Would they have chores? What sort of punishments would they have for things like fighting?

Character is a female who goes into the orphanage at age 8 or so and was probably born in 1979 or 1980. It was a mixed gender orphanage and she might have been transferred orphanages a few times for conduct problems related to trauma. That's all we know.

Thanks in advance!
