At Orchard Hill College the therapy team work as part of the multidisciplinary team to support students, staff and parents/carers to facilitate learning. The therapy provision includes delivering specialist and bespoke training to the curriculum staff from all disciplines and adapted to the student’s needs.

Therapy aims to maximise students’ participation, independence, emotional and physical well-being and academic attainment. Therapy programmes are integrated within the curriculum which are tailored to the students’ clinical needs, aspirations, and Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP) outcomes.

Therapy will promote students’ ability to generalise learned skills into their everyday life so that they have tangible, measurable and realistic outcomes. Therapists work closely with community services and professionals to ensure a holistic provision for students and continuity with transitions.

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.
