Previous School:


What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

The trips! In History I went on a residential to Berlin, which brought to life the content of the Cold War that I learnt in class, and it was a really fun trip. Trips to Newhaven and Stratford for my Geography coursework meant I had a good basis of knowledge for fieldwork to build off.

How have you found the teaching and support staff?

All my teachers have encouraged my career aspirations and have supported me if I’m unsure of a topic in any subject. They’ve also directed me towards extra reading and activities outside my subjects which has furthered my learning.

Tell us about any College Enrichment activities you’ve been involved in.

I was the Environmental Officer on the Students’ Union, so have been able to get involved in lots of environmentally focused activities this year. These have included helping organise ‘Green Week’ and running several ‘Swap Shops’.

I’ve completed the Carbon Literacy Award which furthered what I learnt in my Carbon topic in Geography and was a great qualification for my CV. I also chose to do an Extended Project Qualification, which allowed me to research a topic I was really interested in and focus on sustainability.

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

I like that we are treated like adults, which really prepares us for university, and the structure of the timetable, which gives us freedom to work on the computers in the ILC, or go into the town if we like. I’ve made lots of new friends while being in the Students’ Union.

What’s your plan for when you leave College?

I plan to study Geography at Southampton University and would like to work in Climate Science afterwards.
