Why did you choose Reigate College?

The College offered the courses I really wanted to do and I’d heard lots of positive feedback from friends who’d previously studied at the College.

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

I’ve really enjoyed the practical side of the courses; I find it much easier to learn from doing.

How have you found the teaching and support?

The teachers have all been really supportive; they’ve all made themselves available outside lessons.

What are your interests outside the classroom?

I like to keep fit and I also enjoy running, rock climbing and both building and racing drones.

I was also in the Army cadets and completed my Gold DofE Award through that.

What do you think makes Reigate College a good place to be a student?

It’s big enough for everyone to find their own friendship group. Also the location is ideal with it being so close to town and all the shops and amenities.

What are your plans for the future?

I want to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a Pilot. I’m waiting to hear if I’ve got through the selection for City Jets on their Commercial Cadetship programme. If I’m accepted, I hope to start aviation pilot training at CAE Oxford in September.
