Lindsey Walker, Head of Foundation Education
“Coming to Lancaster & Morecambe College is hands down in the top 5 decisions I’ve made in my life. I feel happier, safer, more confident and able to succeed. The tutors and staff are amazing and are ready to talk to you about anything you need at the drop of a hat. College is a safe and accepting place where I can be myself and not worry about it. Never once have I had a problem. I am excited to continue onto a higher level course in September, and I can honestly say College is my favourite place to be.”
