Lewisham Southwark College prepared me well for university in many ways. It gave me confidence in vital skills like writing, which are really important on a degree course, and sparked my creativity.

Since I have started on the course my maths has improved a lot. On some of my tests I have even scored 100%. My teacher has been very helpful and he does everything he can to help us understand and learn in class. I am very grateful to him for all the help.
