Previous School:


Why did you choose Reigate?

I chose Reigate College because I liked the independent learning environment and broad selection of courses available.

How did you decide which subjects to study?

I enjoy both learning languages and discovering more about the cultures behind the languages. It was good to have a choice of two A Level History courses and the Modern History one particularly appealed to me.

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

I’ve really enjoyed the conversation lessons with French and Spanish Language Assistants, as they’ve allowed me to practice speaking the language but also find out more about what it’s like to live in France and Spain, as I hope to travel there in the future.

Tell us about any College activities you’ve been involved in outside lessons

I’ve been part of the College Hockey Team, which was great for meeting new people. I’ve also done my Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which made me step out of my comfort zone and acquire new skills.

What do you like most about being a student at Reigate College?

I enjoy the independent working and learning environment, which allows me to study in the way that benefits me the most.

I also like the variety of people I’ve been able to become friends with, and the comfortable and supportive environment at the College.

What are your plans for the future?

My plan for the future is to study Law with Spanish at Nottingham University, and have a year abroad in Spain or a Spanish-speaking country.
