"My name is Matthew and I come from Henley. I came to The Henley college in September 2020 to study Information Technology and Creative Technology Extended Certificate Level 2. The course went well; there was a lot of work that needed to be done but I pushed through to do the best I could and try for the grade I wanted. 

I am now preparing to move onto the College’s ICT and Computing Extended Diploma Level 3 qualification this September. 

I really liked the feeling of the college when I first visited, and my first impression was “this is a good place.” 

My decision to study  IT was influenced by the things that I’ve seen that you can do with IT andand my ambition is to get the grades I need for the job I want in the future.  

My advice to someone who has just finished their GCSEs is to try your best. Even if you fail, if you tried your best you will still have learned something that can help you in the future."
