My experience at London Brookes College has been one of a kind. Initially, upon my arrival at the college, I was nervous about meeting new friends, building relationships with my new teachers and simply ‘fitting in’. However, the college allowed me to feel comfortable and confident immediately. Personally speaking, this college has amazing English and Politics teachers who explain concepts in the depth, my English teachers provided me with all the resources needed to achieve the best grade possible. In addition to this, my politics teacher was able to elaborate and explain complicated current affairs in detail, giving me a broader understanding of the world of politics – I even managed to attend the House of Lords 4 times this year based on a programme which I was put on.
