It's hard to believe that we're already at the end of another year at Orchard Hill College, which meant it was time to celebrate at our Outstanding Achievement Awards.

Students and their families were dressed to the nines to celebrate with their peers and receive their awards at the beautiful surroundings of Epsom Downs Racecourse. Following welcome drinks everyone took to their seats for a welcome from CEO and Principal Dr Caroline Allen OBE, and we were soon in to the awards presentation. We were delighted to welcome special guests The Mayor of Sutton, Dr David Watkins and Lord Tope to present students with their certificates- each one personalised to commend their biggest achievement on completing their course.

The presentation of certificates was followed by a delicious buffet, and then in true Orchard Hill style, everyone hit the dancefloor!

The evening was a fantastic celebration of all our students achievements, described by one guest as β€œan amazing event. It was the perfect balance between formal and friendly, high profile and family-centric.”

Our Nursing Manager Lisa said it was β€œa fantastic night for our students. The staff teams are so proud of their students, they looked amazing and had a wonderful time!”

The evening was the perfect celebration to highlight the achievements of each and every student who is (sadly, on our part!) at the end of their course at Orchard Hill College. We would like to wish all our leavers the very best for the future, and hope they stay in touch as alumni and keep us updated with their progress.
