With all the support from teachers and students services it put me in the right frame of mind to push you forward in doing really well and doing the best you can. In terms of University I’m looking forward to living in a different part of the country – that will be amazing and starting life on my own. Doing what I really want to do and after University I’m not sure – acting, drama therapy – I’m not sure yet.”

One has been amazing, I drove to One every day and it takes about 40 minutes - but it’s been worth it. The teachers have been amazing. The building and the equipment and all the staff are here to support you. Honestly - it’s just been the best experience.”
