Open Events

The best way to see if Orchard Hill College is right for you is to attend one of our Open Events that are run throughout the year across our college centres. You can meet the teams, have a look at the college facilities and ask any question you may have.

In the interests of safety all Open Events in the Autumn and Spring term will be virtual. These offer a flexible, hassle-free way to view the college. These will include an overview of the college, the curriculum and the application process. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and speak to someone from the Curriculum, Assessments and Placements or Integrated Services teams. We are currently showcasing video tours of our centres including; Wyvern House, Vocational Progression Centre, Lomond House and Beaconsfield Centre.
