Christmas card competition winner!

Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust were delighted to receive 58 entries for the annual Christmas Card Competition, what talented and creative pupils and students we have! The designs filled us with Christmas cheer, so much so, we adorned the OHC&AT Reception with the festive drawings and collages to create a beautiful and eye-catching montage Visitors have been complementing the display throughout December.

The designs were judged by the owner of “Glazed All Over”, a ceramic shop in Wallington, that currently sells our students artwork. We are delighted to let you know that John from the Young People’s Academy won first place!

Big well done to John – Congratulations!

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
