I came to The Henley College from Cox Green School, as I really wanted a change of environment and liked the style of a college compared to a sixth form.
Whilst studying Chemistry at Henley I really enjoyed the practical lessons, particularly the lesson where we got to synthesise aspirin in chemistry. I also enjoyed having the opportunity to take part in the chemistry Olympiad and Cambridge Chemistry Challenge
I enjoyed the freedom that I was given and the fact that I was treated like an adult. The more relaxed environment allowed me to make my own decisions about my studies. My teachers were also all really enthusiastic which really helped me to develop my love for science.
