A parent's view

"During his final year of school, my son was totally undecided whether to remain at sixth form or move on to college.

"However, after visiting Weston College for an open evening made the decision easy. We received some fantastic advice and guidance on the courses and subjects available and were immediately impressed with the facilities.

"The entire process of choosing and applying for courses and enrolling was made simple and completely hassle-free - which really put our mind at rest as parents.

"My son thoroughly enjoys going to College every day and also gets involved in a number of activities that are also available. It's a decision he hasn't regretted for a second."
