My experience with the teaching and support was really well, as I’m dyslexic, they helped me a lot and I’ve achieved good grades, so I’m really pleased.

Thomas McCann, A Level student

You take control of your own learning…the college were really helpful and always willing to do anything and go that extra step to help me get my grades.

Scarlette Tiller, A Level student

There are great teachers here. This college has felt more like a university than a school, and it’s definitely lived up to that more grown-up feel.
