Orchard Hill College continues to be Outstanding!

Orchard Hill College are delighted to announce that following an Ofsted inspection in November 2019 they continue to be ‘Outstanding’!

The college was graded ‘Outstanding’ in all four judgement areas. The report stated; “Since the previous inspection governors, leaders, managers and staff have maintained their exceptional standards to provide an outstanding experience for their students. They hold extremely high aspirations for students”.

The report went on to praise the curriculum, which is carefully designed and bespoke to individual students and ensures they are successful and independent in their lives after college. Students receive excellent support and a “high proportion…gain employment or move into voluntary work”. The report also acknowledged the “robust safeguarding processes in place to ensure that students are safe in and out of college”.

Kelly Phillips, college Principal, stated; “I am so proud of all our students and staff who have worked so hard to maintain an ‘Outstanding’ judgement. Our students truly deserve this and it represents the continued dedication of the entire college community.”

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.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
