Long Road Sixth Form students often achieve far more than they ever thought possible – sometimes in their college work, sometimes by taking part in college enrichment activities and sometimes outside college.
The college is proud to recognise these achievements and has launched a regular event to celebrate our students’ successes. The first group of six students was invited to tea, scones and cake with the college principal, Christine Sherwin, college governors Alison White and Stuart Harris, members of the senior leadership team, their progress coaches and, not least, their teachers.
