Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust Careers Site Eteach (40788)


Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust (OHC&AT) together form a family of inclusive/special education providers for pupils and students from primary through to further education. As an outstanding provider and Academy sponsor, Orchard Hill College has a strong track record for making a positive impact within the local communities it serves.

Our ambition is to contribute further to improving the education offer for all pupils and students in our communities, including those with SEN. The College offers specialist educational programmes for pupils and students aged 16 and over in seven main centres and additional satellite provision in London and the South. The Academy Trust enables us to build on and extend scope of our work in these geographical areas, so that Academy pupils can also benefit from our expertise and access a greater range of opportunities arising from our strong community and stakeholder networks.

Supporting our College and Academies, OHC&AT also operates a range of services including: The Digital School; The Training School; Mainstream SEND Support; Learning Support Services and Business Support Services.


About Us

We are steadily extending the reach of our provision within our local communities from primary through secondary to further education, smoothing transitions and giving pupils and students the benefit of expertise generated from our collegiate approach to knowledge-sharing amongst our staff. All of this is underpinned by a suite of shared services whose expert staff work closely with students and staff in each school/College centre and with affiliates and commissioning organisations to improve educational and operational quality at every level to benefit our students.

Pupils and students within the OHC&AT family have a wide range of learning abilities and additional needs including complex autism; speech, language and communication difficulties; social, emotional and mental health; and physical disabilities including multi-sensory impairment and complex health needs.

Orchard Hill College was established in 1983 and has grown from a small hospital provision into an Outstanding College that operates from seven college centres across London and provides post-16 education for students with mild, moderate, severe and profound learning need. In 2013, the College established the Trust to share its expertise and provide services and support to specialist schools. The Trust is now home to 12 special schools across London, Surrey and Sussex.
