Meet Our Students

Want to know what it’s like to study at Stourbridge College? Want to get an insight into life at the college? There’s no better way to find out what’s great about studying with us than from the students themselves. Here are just a handful of our recent success stories …

Jessica - A Levels

“It’s so easy to be inspired by the surroundings at the Art and Design Centre. It’s a lovely environment to work in.”
Creativity runs in Jessica’s family. “My nan sews and I was following in her footsteps from an early age,” said Jessica who is studying Art, English language and Literature and Textiles. “My ambition is to go on to the London College of Fashion, then work in the fashion industry. It would be amazing to write for a magazine and maybe even set one up.
“It’s so easy to be inspired by the surroundings at the Art and Design Centre. It’s a lovely environment to work in. My teachers are really supportive of my ideas and future plans.
“I’ve been really proud of my print work. My screen printing is quite abstract, which means I’m exploring ideas to their full potential.”

Ethan – Carpentry and Joinery

“I like to be busy. Working in construction means you are doing tasks that keep you mentally occupied.”
Ethan plans to find an apprenticeship after finishing his course. “I see it as a way of working my way up and improving my skills,” he said. “I chose Stourbridge College because it was local and I’d heard the building was new.
“I like to be busy. Working in construction means you are doing tasks that keep you mentally occupied.
“The set up here is good and you are encouraged to keep the place tidy as you would on any building site.”

Lewis– Sports Coaching and Development

“It can be challenging to keep up with study and training commitments, but the Academy tutors are always there to make sure you achieve what you’ve set out to.”
As a member of the Kidderminster Harriers Football Academy and a sports student, Lewis Clarke has enjoyed the best of both worlds. “I considered studying A Levels then realised that through the Harriers Academy, I could still play the sport I love at a high level and work towards going to university.
“My course involved a good mix of assignments and practical work, plus a strict training schedule in line with all the competitions and tournaments the Academy’s involved in during the year.
“It can be challenging to keep up with study and training commitments, but the Academy tutors are always there to help you stay on top of things and make sure you achieve what you’ve set out to. That’s why you always want to do your best.”
Lewis progressed on to a physical and sports education science course at the University of Worcester.
