Everything at Orpheus is focussed on maximising lasting independence for our students. We have an entrepreneurial spirit, taking a lead in finding new and effective ways of working in the arts, learning and social care sectors. Our impact and ethos has so engaged and inspired visitors to the college that we benefit from a steady stream of help from arts professionals, tutors, support staff and volunteers. Our students have performed at the House of Lords, the Royal Albert Hall and venues across the UK and worked with schools, prisons, community groups and businesses to break down barriers and challenge stereotypes.
