“I am enjoying being back in education - learning, meeting awsome people and getting my confidence back.” - Craig
Everyone I've met has been great, from the teaching staff to cleaning staff, all really friendly and welcoming. The gardens and grounds are amazing. I'm so glad to be able to study here.
Staying residential was the perfect way for me to learn. As well as the course subject, which everyone is involved in, learning extends beyond the class room.
All staff are amazing always, and willing to help with anything you need. I’m still doing English and Maths but no longer struggle in any of the subjects. All this because of the tutors' support and the good friends I made here. Thank you so much.
