Previous School:

Reigate Grammar School

Why did you choose Reigate College?

I liked the idea of having a change of environment and greater independence with your timetable. You can decide how you want to use your free periods and I often chose to study at home during my frees, as I live locally.

How did you find the move from school to College?

I found the move easy. Some of my friends from school also came to the College, but I’ve really enjoyed making new friendships.

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

In Art I’ve been introduced to new mediums (such as oil painting) and ways of working which I’ve fallen in love with.

How have you found the teaching and support staff ?

The staff have all been really helpful and provided me with a lot of support, particularly with my application for Art Foundation courses.

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

You’re treated as an adult and you get to wear what you like. There are also greater resources than at school, so you’re able to get a lot more out of College, but it’s up to you to do that.
