I really like the class sizes at College because they are more personal

Gained 8 in GCSE English Language.

“I’m really happy to have got an 8 in my English Language GCSE, I was just hoping for anything over a 6! I came to England in 2021 from Spain and I English isn’t my native language, so I have done better than I imagined.

“I really like the class sizes at College because they are more personal so it’s easier to learn. The facilities are excellent, particularly the new Sixth Form, and the teachers are really skilled.

“While I’ve been at Blackburn College, I have involved in the Oxnet programme which gives information and advice about applying to Oxford, Cambridge and other top universities. As part of the programme I was able to visit the University of Oxford which has inspired me to look at applying there to do a degree.”
