What made you choose Reigate?

I hadn’t made up my mind but coming to the taster day I got a really good feel for College life. I like how the focus at College is on encouraging students to take responsibility for their learning. The teachers are really open and welcoming. 

How have you found the move from GCSE to A Levels?

I found it quite a jump as the subjects are covered in a lot more depth than GCSE. In Biology, I’ve really enjoyed the mix of theory and practical work. In Spanish, the weekly session with the Spanish Assistant has dramatically improved my speaking and listening skills. 

How has the College helped you plan for the future?

I’ve been on the Aspire programme. It’s really helped me to think about applying to university and given me the support to research my options and prepare my UCAS application. 

What are your career plans?

I would like to go to University to study Biology; I’m considering combining it with Spanish to broaden my options.
