"The teachers made the lessons interesting so the students were able to soak up the information better."

Ella Mitchell studied GCSE English at Blackburn College and achieved an outstanding Grade 8 in her exam! Amazing work, Ella!

Ella said: “I chose to study my English GCSE at Blackburn College because I had heard very good things about the College from friends and people I know who have studied here.

“I wanted to get a better grade in my English GCSE and I am so happy to have achieved Grade 8!

“What I enjoyed the most about my course was learning new things and the way we learned different modules. The teachers made the lessons interesting so the students were able to soak up the information better.”

She added: “The tutors were really great! They worked with me whenever I needed help or if I thought I was doing something wrong – they were very reassuring and supported me with all areas of the programme.

“I have decided to stay at Blackburn College to continue my studies. I am currently studying the Art and Design (UAL) Level 2 course.”
