Student voice

 ‘I really loved hair & beauty & have applied for the level 2 course for next year at SGS’

 ‘I’m very happy with the course & it was great to work with the tutors in the salons.’

‘Going to college was really useful for me as I got on really well in construction and seeing the sports made me want to join the boxing academy when I go to SGS next year. Really good’.
