Why did you choose Reigate College?

I’d heard lots of good things about the college and its academic record and felt it would help me towards a bright future.

How and why did you decide which subjects to study?

I chose Health & Social Care because I knew I wanted to work in a caring profession and I thought studying science would help.

How did you find the move from school to College?

I settled in very well at Reigate; it has a great support network and there’s a really positive atmosphere. At Reigate the teachers are encouraging and supportive. They treat you like an adult and with respect.

What have you enjoyed/are you enjoying most about your courses?

My favourite thing about Health & Social care is the work experience placements; you learn so much on them and they give you a flavour of what it’s really like to work in that environment.

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

The practicals that I take part in during my science lessons are always fun and allow me to develop my understanding, as I can physically see what we are learning about.

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

The facilities are great. The main refectory is a good place to get together and sometimes they have bands and music students performing, which creates a nice atmosphere.

What are your plans for the future?

I’m planning to go to Sussex University and do a degree in Social Work. I’m hoping to become a qualified Social Worker and make a real difference to people’s lives.
