Partnership with Crawley College

Orchard Hill College has been working with Crawley College as part of a pilot project initiated by Natspec and the Association of Colleges (AoC).

The project aims to improve outcomes for students with special educational needs and disabilities through specialist colleges working together with general further education providers. Together Orchard Hill College and Crawley College are ensuring that young people with complex medical needs are able to get the support they require to attend their local mainstream college. We are very proud of the outcomes we have achieved working with Crawley College, the video below showcases our work:


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