What are your plans for when you leave Barton Peveril?

“I plan to go into employment whether that is by going into a job or an apprenticeship to do with either IT or Business. Barton Peveril has allowed me to explore new areas of my subjects which has allowed me to use the skills I have learnt outside of college. The teachers have been excellent at teachers and have been very approachable. Furthermore, they have made each lesson enjoyable to be in.”

What influenced your decision to come to Barton Peveril?

“When I came to Barton Peveril on the Open Evening, everyone was extremely helpful and kind which gave the college a warm feel to it. Subsequently, when I came to Barton Peveril on the Taster Day I noticed that everyone was helpful and approachable, they made the day the easiest and calmest as it could be. I knew from this as well as the subjects that Barton Peveril College was where I wanted to go to continue my education.”

What do you particularly enjoy about Barton Peveril?

“I particularly enjoy student life and lessons due to the fact that you don’t feel like you do at school. Here you feel like you are treated as an adult and you are respected throughout. The lessons are always enjoyable without fail.”
