What our students have to say

Our success is measured by the important views of our valued students. Here is a snapshot of what they have to say about us. 

 

 

 

“The reasons why I like Petty Pool are: that the staff and the learner mentors are kind and friendly. They’ve helped me get an amazing job at Atkins and I am busy working there 2 days a week. This is my final year at Petty Pool and I am in the supported internship class. I like everything about it. “

“Petty Pool is a good college. All the staff and students are really kind to each other. I am in the supported internship class and enjoy going to work at the premier inn each week. My confidence has grown since being a student at Petty Pool. I have lots of friends here and enjoy spending my breaks with them. “

Petty Pool is a brilliant college. It is really good and you get to choose from lots of really good courses. The staff are nice and friendly. 

I have previously been on the catering course for 2 years and this included my level one. I really enjoyed this. It was stressful at times but the staff are really supportive. 

You get the opportunity to do work experiences. I am in the supported internship group, the staff have supported me to get a regular work placement with the hope of a paid outcome at the end of it. 

The students at Petty Pool are all easy to get a long with and I have made lots of friends. 

I enjoy the overnight residentials at Petty Pool, they are good fun and it is a great chance to be with your mates. This is a good experience for students who might not have had this opportunity before.

“Petty Pool is a very marvellous place, because we get to do loads of different things, like go on day trips to Water World, and go on loads of different residentials like Blackpool and Ribby Hall.

In college, we have loads of different kinds of courses, like catering, animal care, ICT, Retail and Office and Horticulture. I do catering. We prepare meals for the students at college. We chop up all different kinds of veg and salad.

I like spending time with my mates. We talk, socialise and play football. Come along to Petty Pool, all the tutors are friendly and it’s a great place!”

“Petty Pool is a good place to be, because you get to do things that you’ve never done before. There are lots of courses.

You can go on loads of trips like London, Ribby Hall and Anglesey. I love all the students that come here. I’ve made lots of friends. My confidence has grown loads since I’ve been at Petty Pool.”

“Petty Pool is a really good friendly college. The staff are all friendly, they look after you if you are not well. I love working with the animals on my Animal Care course. I work with the animals on the farm. I like all of them.”

I do Functional Skills as well. It gets us better at learning maths and english. Our Functional Skills teacher does money skills with us.

I like talking with my friends at break times. Petty Pool makes students who are shy come out of their shell. The staff talk to the students and make them feel welcome.”

“I think Petty Pool is amazing. You might feel a bit shy when you first come to college, but the staff are nice and kind. The staff meet with the new students that start and greet them. I’m in the Leavers’ group. In the last year we do work placements.”
