All of the facilities are fantastic and by using them, I have learnt so much.”

“The incredible staff and tutors at New College gave me guidance and direction, as well as encouraging my ambition to succeed; and now every day I have the incredible opportunity to work with actors, models, musicians, dancers and comedians. I was also awarded a place at the prestigious Central Saint Martins to study Menswear so that my skills can continue to develop and I can challenge myself further.” – Went on to be a Great British Sewing Bee contestant.

“I would highly recommend the Product Design A Level. You get the opportunity to present original ideas and develop drawing skills, as well as taking part in group work and competitions. Once I started at university I felt well prepared, like I already had a great knowledge of the topics we were covering.” – studying for an architecture degree at Reading university
