Esher College is a great College that provides a wide range of courses, encouraging students to explore subjects that have not been studied before

The attraction for me was the availability of a 3D Design course that was not provided at many other colleges or sixth forms.

Esher College has provided me with the self-motivation, independence and strong work ethic to pursue a degree and a future career in Architecture. The support and encouragement from teachers and useful information provided by the College Portal and email service helped me to understand, decide, and plan for my time after Esher College. For me this was exploring university options. The College also promotes other career paths, such as apprenticeships and foundation courses, to ensure all students have a clear idea of the future plans best suited for them individually.

One of the highlights of Esher College, for me, is the Learning Resource Centre. From the wide variety of study resources and the stationery shop to the large study spaces and generous supply of computers, the facilities enabled me to focus and to use my study periods beneficially to improve my overall learning experience. The excellent teaching staff provided support and guidance within subjects and were always available for me when I needed help. Many subjects provide lunchtime drop-in support sessions with teaching staff at hand. My weekly attendance at the Chemistry sessions allowed me to achieve A grades in exams, after being a D grade student at the beginning of the year. The friendly and respectful relationship between students and teachers creates an enjoyable learning ​​​environment.
