What I would highlight I’m currently studying a Level 2 in Beauty Therapy at college. When I complete this course, I’m hoping to progress in the College and study beauty therapy further. I think College is great because it offers people many different opportunities and it’s a great place to make friends that are interested in the same things as you.

What I would highlight I've been going here for 2 years now and the staff here are all helpful, fun and friendly. They've helped me achieve all that I can thus far and continue too, to this day. Have been to many educational facilities within the UK and abroad. This college could possibly be one of the best, not because of it's current facilities but for the pure reason that it's always improving. Recently the college has undergone heavy external and internal Deco as well as upgrades to the facilities available.
