Art student Steph Lacy
Steph Lacy enrolled on the college’s Foundation course in Art and Design to give her the UCAS points she needed to get into university.
The 18-year-old said: “I dropped out of sixth form after a week as I didn’t enjoy the way we were being treated and didn’t feel comfortable there. College is much better because there is a wide range of ages on the course and I am meeting a lot of different people from all backgrounds.
“The course has been really good and it has helped improve my confidence and the way I work. I have been shown different techniques and materials to use in my art.”
Steph is moving on to the University of Wolverhampton to study Art and Design.
