Principal Abigail Appleton said:
We are thrilled to be placed so highly in this important survey and delighted so many of our students completed it to give us valuable feedback. Students are at the heart of everything we do and the results reflect the focus we put on high quality teaching, individual attention, and high levels of access to staff. Of course we’re not complacent and even where courses have scored exceptionally highly we will work to continue to improve our offer for students next year.
