“My teachers go above and beyond to give me outstanding support”

​​Esher Sixth Form College has had a massive impact on my life that I will never forget. It feels like a second home to me. On my first day, I was very nervous going into such a different environment from secondary school, but all those thoughts were put to bed once I was welcomed with such enthusiasm from the teachers. Their joy of their subjects as well as the amazing facilities Esher has to offer, made me feel straight away that I was on the right path for my future. 

My courses: The teachers go above and beyond to give us outstanding support; including lunchtime and after-school clinics which help cement your subject knowledge. On top of this there are various trips which consolidate your learning in real life and also help you to find out what jobs or careers you might want in the future. The Biology department’s ‘Past Paper Club’ has been invaluable and the staff treat me as an individual by personally ensuring I’m on the right track to achieving my grades. 

Best Bits: Definitely the social events such as Freshers’, which take the pressure off the stress of A Levels and helped me make lifelong friends, who I now look forward to seeing every day at College. 

After Esher, the immense support I’ve received here has made me confident that I will achieve the grades to study Biochemistry at university. To any student thinking about coming here, be prepared for the jump from GCSES to A Levels but know that with all brilliant staff and unbelievable facilities here, you can achieve the grades you need for your future.​
