Joining College

 

If you are offered a place at Orchard Hill College we will send you a confirmation letter and you can decide if you would like to accept the place.

Once you accept we work with your local authority to get the right support needed for you to attend College. In the summer term you will be invited to a transition course, this will take place in the centre you will be joining and will last for around 6 weeks. You will have an opportunity to meet with your peers and your new teaching staff. You will also be offered a home visit, where your teacher and a member of the therapy team will spend time getting to know you at home. Throughout this process we will be in contact regularly and will support you through this journey.

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
