Equality & Diversity

Orchard Hill College is committed to creating an inclusive environment, where people are treated with dignity and respect and where we anticipate and respond positively to different needs and circumstances so that everyone can achieve their potential.

We are committed to promoting and advancing equality of opportunity, not only because it is an important part of our mission, vision and values, but also because by attracting and retaining the most diverse range of students, staff and partners, we will ensure the College’s future success.

We believe that everyone has the right to be treated fairly and without discrimination, regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, circumstances or background.

We will consult and involve the College community in our decision making and use a number of forums including Student Council, Parent coffee meetings and staff meetings.

Equality Objectives – to follow

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.
