Niall has joined us this academic year from Lealands High school, having completed his GCSEs including Art & Design this summer.
Niall expected that he would join us to study Level 1 Art & Design, however he was bumped straight up to Level 2 due to his aptitude and passion for the subject.
“When I visited the College, I thought the facilities had a very impressive overall look and feel,” he said. “I was also impressed by the staff I met before enrolling.”
He has bravely joined Barnfield College as the only member of his circle of friends based at our New Bedford Road Campus. But that hasn’t worried Niall.
“If I had to describe my experience at Barnfield so far, I’d say ‘enjoyable’, ‘fun’, and ‘calming’. Joining a new college could have been overwhelming but the staff have made the experience very calming.
“My tutor Kwasi [Owusu] stood out especially as very friendly and welcoming, and I’ve already made some of the best friends yet.
“I’m already really enjoying my time here. I study here 4 days a week with 2 half days, but on my days off, I actually feel like I want to be in College!”
