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.”

We want you to feel confident and excited about starting full time study with us, which is why we have created Aspire to, Path to and Bridge to.
