Competition Winner!

168 students across the Orchard Hill College Academy Trust took part in competition to design the official OHC&AT Christmas Card.

This year our very own Parin was awarded first place for his original festive design featuring the words of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” in the shape of a Christmas tree.

His win was celebrated in assembly, where he was presented with a framed winners certificate and an art set from Principal, John Reilly. As a special surprise Parin also received a box of bespoke printed Christmas cards decorated with his design. The Link Secondary School also received five Highly Commended certificates for their other competition entries. Well done!

The winning design.


There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent
