About Orchard Hill College Academy Trust

Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT) was established in 2013 by Orchard Hill College, the academy sponsor. OHCAT currently has 15 Special Education Needs (SEN) schools and academies in London, Surrey, Sussex and Berkshire.

Our pupils and students need an outstanding mixed offer within our local communities to suit their different ambitions and needs: Mainstream, SEN, Primary, Secondary and Further Education. With that in mind, we give careful consideration to those who may wish to join our family, as follows:

Making a difference – each member contributes to the mix and balance of our ‘family’.

Collaborative – each ‘family’ unit engages actively with the local community and the OHC&AT family.

Responsive – we assess and seek to provide what is needed in each of our community hubs.

If you would like to find out more about working with OHCAT, please contact us on email: enquiries@ohcat.org or tel: 0345 402 0453

 

Our Academies

As a community of learners, families and colleagues OHC&AT believes that by working collaboratively, with energy and ambition we can always effect positive change. No limit is placed on what is possible and everyone has the ability to be the very best they can be.
