Lotte achieved A*A*A* and B and is progressing to study Midwifery at Sheffield Hallam University.

Lotte was part of the East Lancashire Scholars Programme run by Villiers Park Educational Trust.

"I decided to study at Blackburn College because the atmosphere was so unlike other colleges – in a good way. It seemed a lot more like university and I liked the fact you were given the freedom to really be yourself."

"The tutors at Blackburn College have been really great. In fact, they were the single most important factor in helping me achieve what I have achieved."

"I really enjoyed doing an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) – where I conducted independent research and produced a dissertation about the over-medicalisation of Midwifery."

"I received a lot of support from the College’s high achievers’ coordinator David Jones and had weekly meetings with him to ensure the project was coming along successfully."

"I’ve also been involved in plenty of other things that Blackburn College offers, like the Debating Matters programme – where you get to develop your debating skills against other young people."

"Because of the support I received from Blackburn College, I achieved an A*, A*, A* and B in my A-Levels and am now progressing to study Midwifery at Sheffield Hallam University."
