Join the Family

OHC&AT is sponsored by Orchard Hill College, an outstanding Specialist College for students with special needs. With Orchard Hill College as their sponsor, OHCAT Academies are supported to improve their own systems and services, allowing them to strengthen and broaden educational provision for pupils and professional development for staff.

Other schools and education providers can become affiliate members of the family, with some education providers nationally and internationally commissioning services from the family through the OHC&AT shared services organisation.

The OHC&AT family includes:

  • SEN and mainstream academies and colleges
  • The Training School
  • The Digital School
  • The Mainstream SEND Support Hub
  • The Learning Support Services
  • Business Support Services
