About Orchard Hill College

Orchard Hill College is an Outstanding Specialist College offering life-changing learning opportunities to young people and adults. We have seven vibrant College Centres across London and Surrey where committed, specialist teams deliver a range of programmes to meet the needs of our students.

Students who study with us have a wide range of needs including:

All students are individual and each programme is designed to support and empower each student to achieve their aspirations and goals, whilst developing skills to become more independent members of their community.

Our College Centres

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of OHC&AT will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.   We are looking forward to a bright future as part of the OHC&AT family.
