When I came for an Open Day I already knew that this was the college for me due to the great facilities and nice, friendly helpful staff. I find it an amazing place for students to reach their potential. The learning environment is flexible with both theory and practicals. The college offers plenty of activities to participate in and I am part of the Netball Academy. I enjoy the clubs that I am involved in and I am able to manage coursework, clubs and matches. My teachers are very supportive and always help if I struggle and ensure that I do not fall behind on course work.
