What our students say

Cassidy Escott, Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science L3


Cassidy Escott

"Weston college had provided me with countless opportunities within my studies and playing which has allowed me to go onto one of the best sporting universities in the UK and the world. I felt That throughout my time at the college I was heavily supported and guided so I could persuade my aspirations. I chose to study sport and exercise science as it allowed me to have a broader insight into the sports industry helping to make the decision of university becoming easier. During my time at the college, I was lucky enough to get a once-in-a-lifetime work placement with Bristol bears ladies in sports analysis where I helped to film and code both training and games."

Former school: Hans Price Academy

Studied: Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science L3

What next? Cassidy is progressing to Loughborough University to complete a degree in Sport Science, Coaching and Physical Education.
