Being a governor is a truly rewarding role, you share your knowledge and expertise, meet other governors with the same sense of social responsibility and passion to advocate and make a difference.

Peter Lauener, Chair of Trustees, Orchard Hill College

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
