Orchard Hill College is fundraising to create more opportunities for our students. Please join us!

Supporting us can make such a difference.

With your support, Orchard Hill College is able to help more young people with a range of special education needs. Whether it is helping them to have access to modern therapy and teaching facilities or more equipment and resources, your help is crucial for us.

The student fees that we receive from Local Authorities pay only for the day to day provision of our core services. To expand our provision, build or refurbish and modernise our teaching and therapy facilities, we rely on grants, donations and philanthropic income. Your support will enable us to maintain and improve on what we have achieved so far and build the future for more young people with special education needs.
