Why did you choose Reigate College?

The College has a great reputation and coming here meant I could combine the courses I’m most interested in. How did you find the move from school to College? The workload is definitely a step up from GCSE so that took a bit of getting used to, but I’m very settled now and have loads of friends here.

Tell us about your Football achievements?

I started playing Football aged four and when I was old enough I got involved with Surrey Schools Training, which led on to playing for Surrey County. From there I was scouted by Brighton & Hove Albion and I’ve worked my way up to their Development U21s squad. I’ve loved playing for their First Team, especially when we won 5-0 against the London Bees!

How has the College supported you?

The College has been really helpful in arranging my timetable so I have Wednesdays off, and also supported me when I’ve needed time off for matches. I train at least three times a week in Lancing so I need to be organised and keep on top of my work.

What are your plans for the future?

I’m planning on carrying on with Football and will hopefully get a full-time contract, and maybe even compete for England!
