“Before starting College, I didn’t really know where to go. Some of my close friends and family recommended I check out Stoke on Trent College so I did and I never looked back!

After 4 years at Stoke on Trent College I was surprised by the amount of fun enrichment activities on offer. I also felt the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere made it really easy to meet new friends.

The supportive nature of the tutorage was outstanding and nothing was too much to ask for!”
