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 14 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

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 Orchard Hill College Academy Trust will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.
