We are aware of the weather conditions across Cornwall currently and are monitoring the situation closely. The college is open as usual but staff and students are asked to travel only if safe to do so. We are expecting delays due to travel disruption. Absence reporting can be found here. Thank you for your patience.

Amelie studied a wide range of A Levels, including Biology, where she covered various topics such as biological molecules, proteins, cells, digestive systems, heart and blood systems, genetics, nervous systems, nutrient cycles and more.
Amelie joined the Elite Academy outside of her main studies and believes the College facilities have everything you could ask for.
“Biology was a real big step-up from GCSE” said Amelie. “It wasn’t just learning facts and learning just for specifications. Instead of watching experiments on a screen you actually got to do experiments.
“Inspiring lecturers that bring science to life really helped me decide what I wanted to do after College.
“I love the academies side to College and also the HWS (Health, Wellbeing and Sport). It’s just something else that is completely random to your studies.
