Welcome to Orchard Hill College. We are a specialist college committed to offering social and vocational opportunities for students in the heart of their communities.
We pride ourselves on building bright futures and changing the lives of our students. Our programmes are designed for students over the age of 16 with a range of special needs.
Orchard Hill College is Ofsted ‘Outstanding’. We are proud of this achievement as it recognises our students’ fantastic work and the dedication and commitment of our staff team.
We have centres across London and Surrey that provide a learning environment that is inspiring, educational, creative and individualised. We offer a range of exciting vocational programmes from animal care and catering to digital media and many more.
College is an exciting next step for students and should be a fulfilling journey where life and work skills are developed and outcomes are achieved, ready for life after college.
If you would like to join a college with a “can-do” attitude, where all students’ contributions and talents are recognised and celebrated, I invite you to get in touch, or visit one of our Open Events to meet the teams, have a look at our facilities and ask any questions you may have.
