Many thanks for organising my visit yesterday. I really enjoyed looking around the college and our conversations along the way. I feel much more informed about the opportunities that the college will offer our students when I talk to them.

I just wanted to, once again, thank you all for your involvement in the Year 11 mock interview event. As a result of your contribution to the event, I know that all our students have had a really positive and meaningful encounter with an employer or post 16 providers, and for many, a first interview” type experience.
