I got into both of the universities I wanted to. It happens so fast and it’s an amazing feeling when you think that all of the work you’ve done has paid off in the best way possible.Anton Sukhorukov, A Level student
My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.Edward Smith, BTEC 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.Vicky Lipscombe, A Level student
