Feedback

We conduct a short Parent/ Carers survey twice per academy year which you will be encouraged to complete. Working closely with families is a crucial part of our work at Orchard Hill College. It is important to us that you have your say, as we want to ensure that we are doing everything to we can to support and nurture students. Your feedback helps us to focus on key areas of improvement and the issues that are important to you and our students’.

Parent quotes:

Fantastic college that has changed my daughter’s life; from day one she has been happy, staff are caring and professional and treat her with respect and kindness . She is now learning so much at a level she can understand and her needs are of the foremost importance.

Staff are always friendly and approachable. My son thoroughly enjoys his time at college and is making great progress. It’s always a pleasure to come into college and see the high standard of care and support the staff give. Great atmosphere.

Really cannot fault Orchard Hill at all, my son has come along way in his time at the college and I cannot thank all the staff past and present that have helped him develop over the years. Thanks you all

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