Cheese-Making Course 2015

Attended a very enjoyable cheese making class on Saturday 17 October 2015, including cheese tasting, a Dairy Tour and our finished cheeses to take home. The cheese making courses are unique in being offered by a working Cheese Dairy, and of particular value was the guided tour  of the Dairy to see how cheese is made on a bigger and commercial scale. This offered valuable insights into running a hobby on a scale profitable as a business. Here are some pictures from the day…..

Great Day for Our Science Team!

Amazing results for our students especially in the sciences. We have been celebrating an excellent year for A Level results at its Sixth Form Haywards Heath campus today (Thursday 13 August).

Students and staff at the College marked the occasion with a special continental breakfast including bucks fizz, fresh juice and a range of tasty pastries, after achieving an overall pass rate of 98%.  This year, more students than ever before (73%), achieved high grades of A* to C, with many moving on to top UK universities including, Oxford, Imperial College London, University College London (UCL), University of Bath, Bristol University and Exeter University to name a few.

Among this year’s high achievers was eighteen year old Greg Henderson, from Haywards Heath. He was awarded three A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics, achieving an astounding 100% in two out of the three subjects. Greg has been accepted to study Physics at the University of Oxford. An outstanding biology student Katie Tomsett scored 100% in both her Biology exams – a fantastic achievement! She will go on to read Biology at the University of Sussex after securing a number of unconditional offers from the Russell Group Universities.

Another high-flyer was eighteen year old Yann Newby, from Haywards Heath. Yann achieved an A* in Chemistry and two As in Biology and Maths, allowing him to go on to Oxford University to study Biological Sciences. Catherine Jesson successfully achieved A* and 2 As will go onto study Medicine.

The team is very proud… WELL DONE GUYS!
