“My life in Sixth Form College is a life I really enjoy.

I used to be a student in main stream school and I didn’t enjoy it all that well but when I transferred to Wargrave House School and Ascent I was thrilled.

School life here was different, I got to go out in to the public to do fun and interesting things while learning at the same time!

I even get to learn how to cook my own food and get to help Jan, Alison and Gayle in Reception for work experience which gave me the confidence to get an actual job out in the world.

My student life here is great, no amazing, thanks to the support from family, my friends – that I made here and the staff! I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them.”
