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

Outstanding Achievement Awards

On Tuesday 2nd July we held our Outstanding Achievement Awards at Epsom Downs Racecourse to celebrate our leavers’ achievements. Students, their families and friends arrived ‘dressed to the nines’ to have portraits taken in front of the ‘2019’ balloons before entering the beautifully decorated room for their awards ceremony.

We had the pleasure of welcoming special guests; Mayor of Epsom and Ewell, John Beckett; Director of FE at the ESFA, Peter Mucklow; Director at the DfE, Tony Foot; Croydon Council’s Autism Champion, Jerry Fitzpatrick; and Chief Operating Officer of the DfE, Mike Green.

Each student was awarded with a certificate marking the culmination of their studies as well as a yearbook so they can remember their time at College. This was followed by a delicious buffet and of course…non-stop dancing! The evening was great fun and it was the perfect way to recognise the achievements of our students. We are so proud of you all and wish you the best for the future!

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