What our students say

Adult Education - Rosie

It's really nice to be back, I've been a long time out of education. It's actually given me a lot more confidence.

The college have been brilliant, they're really flexible. Go for it, because there's a lot more support than you realise. Sometimes it's really nerve-racking and you don't want to take that first step, but it's the best thing you'll ever do.

Adult Education - Josh

I didn't really know what I wanted to do and I didn't really have the necessary grades to go straight to university.

I found this course; it was a great opportunity for me to do a good foundation and get myself to university for next year. I've learnt so much from this access course. It's been really good, I enjoyed it, the tutors are really supportive.
