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

I focused and worked hard to get the grades. I had some support from my lecturer during a stressful time. The college is really good and supportive.

Natasha Boerer, BTEC student

My experience at the college has been really good, it’s been really rewarding, all the lecturers were so lovely and supportive there’s no way I could have done it without them - the teaching has been outstanding.
