Our Approach to Fundraising

Addington Valley Academy is part of Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (the Trust) which is sponsored by Orchard Hill College (the College) and together form Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust (OHC&AT), a family of specialist education providers for pupils and students aged from two to 24 years of age across London, Surrey and Sussex. Please see www.ohcat.org for more information.

Pupils and students within the OHC&AT family of providers have a wide range of learning abilities and additional needs including complex autism; speech, language and communication difficulties; social, emotional and mental health; and physical disabilities including multi-sensory impairment and complex health needs.

OHC&AT will raise funds for specific projects that will benefit existing and future pupils and students where funds for these projects cannot be accessed via existing channels i.e. government education funding.

The progress my son has made is phenomenal, we couldn’t be happier.

We feel very lucky that he is in this school.
