“Emily has been an outstanding student in Religious Studies. She is exceptionally conscientious and very organised. Emily meets all deadlines and unfailingly tries her best, constantly trying to improve her work and drive herself forward. She is a mature and thoughtful student who takes a reflective approach to her own learning and progress; she asks for help and clarification where needed and takes advice on board. Emily applies a range of techniques to her revision and recording of information, using those that work best for her, with very good results. She has regularly attended extra voluntary revision sessions after College and even started these in Year 10. She has been a pleasure to teach and deserves every success in her forthcoming GCSEs.”

A Manhire, Teacher of English

“Emily puts an incredible amount of effort into her Maths. She has been at almost every revision session since the start of the year and spends extra time on homework to make sure she understands how to do the problems. She also has a great positive attitude - when she comes into a lesson she is cheerful; especially since her Maths has ‘clicked’ this year!”

Teacher of Mathematics

“Emily is a determined individual who gives nothing but her best in everything that she does. She is ambitious and knows what she wants from her education, future and life and nothing will get in her way to stop her from achieving it. She excels herself in lessons and on the sports field. She is committed to her studies as well as to sport in and out of College. In College she has been a valued and strong member of many sports teams but especially netball and rounders. In lessons, she never gives up and is an excellent motivator of others and has a real competitive side to everything she does. She continually works hard and is an absolute pleasure to teach and will go far in life. She is a role model to others and deserves all the success and luck for her future aspirations.”
