“College has supported me and helped me go to America firstly by giving me the idea to go and then showing me the right company to go with to make this possible. They always like to be kept up to date with everything that’s going on and I received extra support from maths and English teachers to help me get the best possible grade on my SAT.”

Hannah Williamson, Sport
