We have recently been in touch with the parent of one of our students who wanted to tell us about the experiences that her son was having at college.

We have removed the names from the article to preserve the anonymity of the parent and student.

"I cannot praise LMC and the staff enough. My son didn't particularly enjoy school and there was no way he wanted to go to sixth form, being more practically minded. So after reading your prospectus and attending an open evening he decided on Engineering. After an interview he was accepted on to the Level 3 course, however he didn't pass his English exam, so he joined the Level 2 course. He absolutely loves it, he is really interested in the subject, which helps. I also know how well the subject is delivered by Frank, Stu and the fantastic Alan, who he and the rest of the group have the upmost respect for."

"I can't imagine how difficult it must be to encourage and motivate a group of boys in that age group, but he has it absolutely nailed, with what seems to be a perfect mix of understanding how their brains and emotions work, treating them like young adults, and also keeping their learning on track. For the first time ever, my son is actually enthusiastic about getting out in the morning and tells us in great detail about things that have happened and how he has completed detailed practical work, which he is proud of. He has a 100% attendance and punctuality record, which speaks for itself, and when College were due to be Ofsted inspected, he was messaging the rest of the group the night before to tell them to get themselves there on time and not let Alan down."

"He also attends English with Alison, who again has the ability to keep him on task. I know how he likes to mess about with his friends, given half a chance. He got good grades for his mock, so hoping he passes the GCSE in the summer and can continue on the Level 3 course."

"I freely admit before he started College, I was sceptical and not convinced at all, as when I left school, it didn't have the best of reputations. It wasn't actually until the new starters parents evening in September that I began to change my mind and am now a total convert. Far from being just somewhere they have to go to, they actually choose to go and the staff are genuinely interested in making their time there worthwhile, but also have strict rules and policies in place, which I fully agree with. At every opportunity I am now preaching to friends, work colleagues or whoever about how impressed we are, as does my son and has accompanied his friends to open evenings."

"The buildings, facilities and resources are also excellent, gives a feeling of being more grown up than school."

"I have just asked him how he would sum up College and he said freedom, two way trust and he wants to be there and learn, not like school. He also talks about diversity and equality and prejudice and the different people he meets, all invaluable life training."
