Mission and Ethos

Our Mission

Orchard Hill College exists to support, enable and champion the talents, skills and rights of the most complex and vulnerable people in our society in order that we can release their potential, promote their wellbeing and transform their lives.

Ethos and Values

Improving opportunities and outcomes for all our students is at the heart of everything we do:

We prepare students to be independent by developing life and work skills ready for life after college.

We provide students with social and vocational opportunities in the heart of their community.

We provide a learning environment that that is inspiring, creative and individualised.

We empower and enable students to be fulfilled, happy, healthy and confident.

We have a can-do attitude and all students’ contributions and talents are celebrated.

 

 

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
