|Course:||EXTENDED DIPLOMA IN BUSINESS|
I came to The Henley College from The Royal Masonic School.
The Business Studies course being offered was my main reason for coming to Henley as I knew I did not wish to pursue A Levels however I wanted to continue to study business studies, after doing it at GCSE level, as it could lead to many of the opportunities that appealed to me most
"Henley college has given me the opportunity to be confident in speaking and dealing with people from all walks of life and giving me the opportunity to mature in an area that I will continue in my career. I am now doing an Apprenticeship with Sytner group at BMW and Mini"
