Orchard Hill College (the College) and Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (the Trust) together form Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust (OHC&AT), a family of specialist education providers for pupils and students from nursery to further education across London, Surrey and Sussex.

The College offers specialist educational programmes for pupils and students aged 16 and over in six 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.

In addition the post will involve delivering training to other staff and provision of aquatic therapy. The post may involve working at any of the College’s centres.
