What the students say 

“I really enjoy my course and I have challenged myself.  I was no good at drill and teamwork but I have improved lots.  The Army residential was hard but good and I learned to work well in a team. 

My class raised over £800.00 playing five a side football for the day and the money bought presents for sick children.  My future plans are to go to University and I would like to be a Police Officer in the future.”
