We are open and, in accordance with government guidelines, we are working to gradually increase the number of students who can return to college safely over the summer term.

As always, we are here to support you, if you are uncertain about what to do please email enquiries@orchardhill.ac.uk

Courses

All students are individual and each course is as unique as they are. Our courses are designed to support and empower each student to achieve their aspirations and goals, which link to four study programmes linked to the Preparing for Adulthood Pathways; Employment, Independent Living, Friends, Relationships & Community and Good Health. We will also develop your core skills in: Communication, Problem Solving, Independence and Mobility, Work Skills, Managing Change and Personal and Social.

We deliver a number of courses and each student will be assessed to ensure they are on the appropriate course for them. Have a look at our Skills for Work and Living Courses on this website that will help you develop your skills whilst studying one of our 14 different and exciting vocational pathways.

To find out more information about our courses or curriculum contact the Assessments & Placements Team on 0345 402 0453 or email enquiries@orchardhill.ac.uk

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