Parents & Carers

At Orchard Hill College we understand that parents/carers need to be involved in their child’s education.

Communication between the College and parents/carers plays a vital role in ensuring students successfully achieve their potential during their time with us. We encourage your feedback and we are always happy to discuss any issues that parents/carers may have.

We understand that parents/carers of children with additional learning needs can often feel isolated and unsure of who to approach for information, advice and guidance. We will be regularly updating the website with useful links, newsletters, events and information that we hope will be of interest to the whole College community.

We seek to ensure all new students are fully prepared to join the College by providing bespoke transition packages. This may include tours, open days, taster days, curriculum samples and home visits.

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.
