Before coming to Carmel I was quite apprehensive as I was an external student from St Aidans, in the first week I knew I had made the right decision. I was made to feel very welcome and the support at Carmel was amazing. I got to take part in lots of different activities and opportunities whilst being apart of the college, my favourites being the pilgrimage to Lourdes and Santa dash. When starting college I didn’t really know my end goal until I was in 2nd year where I realised my dream job would be to be a nurse. I am now at the University of York studying adult nursing.

As a student who joined Carmel only during Sixth Form, the staff were extremely helpful and often provided support in situations I wasn’t aware I needed support in. The smaller class sizes ensured that any help that was needed was not missed, and also granted me more confidence to speak out. As a Sixth Form, there has not been a moment where I regretted choosing Carmel, and everything I learned both in and out of class have helped me in my endeavours at university and no doubt my future careers.
Previous School: Haughton Academy

My decision to study at Carmel was an easy one as their results spoke for themselves and I was already aware of the brilliant support system in place. The smaller class sizes lead to a great relationship with the staff and a focus on your personal goals and development. I have made both great friends and lasting memories and it’s a time I will look back on with immense fondness.
