I came to The Henley College from Langtree School. I was very worried about taking the Engineering course as there is a lot of maths and physics involved within the curriculum. When I started college, I applied for Upgrade lessons and saw Jan once a week to help support me with my work. Applying for Upgrade was one of the best decisions I made this year.
I have definitely enjoyed the more practical side of the course. I've liked being in the workshop and using the machinery. The Engineering teachers have been very helpful, they have given me excellent support to be able to complete my assignments and to get the DD* grade that I wanted to get. The teachers gave me the confidence to aim higher and to exceed on the course.
