“My teachers are always encouraging me to be the best I can be.”

​​There is always a good, lively environment when walking around Esher Sixth Form College. Everyone is really friendly. My teachers are always encouraging me to be the best I can be and the facilities are great. I couldn’t ask more for more. 

My courses: The Maths department runs a regular Maths clinic where I can get help if I don’t understand the homework or a topic we’ve previously covered. All my subjects have clinics in case you need the extra help and even though the college is larger than a school sixth form, you never feel like a teacher is too busy to help you. 

Best bits: I’ve enjoyed taking part in the Chemistry Cambridge Challenge and Chemistry Olympiad, which have pushed my learning further. The Chemistry in Action trip in my first year was another highlight. It boosted my interest in this subject because we could hear from experts in the industry talk about all the different areas chemistry can take you. 

After Esher, I want to study chemistry at the University of Birmingham.
