At Leyton I have found the teachers really helpful and supportive. All students clearly enjoy their studies and are great to work with. In the future, my main aspiration is to perform in musical theatre after attending one of the leading Drama and Music Schools in London.

My time at LSC has been exceptional, I have had a great experience studying what I have always been interested in, while still trying to push myself to be as independent as possible. In particular, I have worked closely with the learning support department who have been so supportive.

My experience at LSC has been enjoyable and eventful. I was able to join new clubs such as the citizens UK which allowed me to be more active in my community. I was able to reach my academic goals through 1 on 1 meetings with my teachers.

LSC is a warm friendly environment which is very supportive of my education and ambitions. There are many opportunities here to get involved into clubs and societies and make new friends. I am enjoying my studies very much and have ambitions to study other subjects at University like Social Science.
