Jess Codling
My A Levels are very interesting as there’s so much to learn about and you never ever stop learning! They are all well connected and I enjoy learning more and more about each subject. The Sixth Form Centre is a great place to study; they have lots of good facilities. I am hoping to progress to university to study Physics.
