Why did you choose Reigate?
I liked the wide variety of subjects on offer. I took a real mix and the College allowed me to take any combination I chose, including Philosophy and Spanish, which are less widely available at other colleges and school sixth forms.
What have you enjoyed most about your courses?
I’ve found that in all my subjects, as the work gets more challenging, it gets more interesting. The problems get harder to solve and you need to be creative in how you apply the techniques you’ve learnt – but that also means it’s far more satisfying when you do find a solution or an insight.
How have you found the commute to College?
My journey to college is significantly longer than my journey to secondary school was, but I didn’t find it too hard to adapt to a new routine.
What’s the atmosphere at College like?
Students want to learn and teachers want to teach, so it makes a productive environment for everyone.
What are your plans for the future?
I’m planning to study Maths and Philosophy at university, but I’ve not decided on a particular career yet. Ben, 2017
