Vraj previously attended another college where he didn't do so well in his exams. He took advantage of St Charles' restart programme and gained A grades in Maths and Chemistry and a B in Biology. He is going to the University of Nottingham to study Engineering and hopes to become an engineer when he graduates.
St Charles has a friendly atmosphere and it is easy to make friends and have a laugh. It's a great community and everyone gets along, regardless of their background. There are always lots of events and charity work that students can get involved with to take their minds off revision and exams for a while!
The teachers are very helpful and give a lot of one-to-one attention. They are caring and want everyone to reach their full potential. I was able to come here and make a fresh start with full support from all my teachers. Everyone in the College puts in 100% effort, whether it's the teachers or support staff.
My time at St Charles has given me a huge confidence boost academically. I have achieved things I could never have dreamt of. It's also made me less shy, as I came into the College knowing no one but have left with a bunch of friends and lots of memories I won't forget.
