Meet Our Students

Want to know what it’s like to study at Sutton Coldfield 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 …

Amber - Art and Design (Theatre Arts)

“The horror movie genre is totally my thing.”

It was while being an extra on a movie about zombies that Amber first found out about her college course. “I was doing my GCSEs when the film was being made and I got talking to some of the students who were doing the make-up for the movie,” she explained. “I was totally inspired by everything they were doing and told me about their course so I decided to come here.

“Although we’re in college, we’re out and about all the time. I’ve been to local schools applying make-up effects and can’t wait to have an opportunity to be involved in another film. The horror movie genre is totally my thing.”

Clara - Applied Science Diploma

“I love the close knit community in the course and I’ve made a ton of friends.”
Clara has always been passionate about science and hopes that the applied science course will help her fulfil her dream career paths in dentistry or nursing.
Clara said “As well as learning fundamental science work for our course, we get to take part in really fun practicals, which also help my English and Maths development.
“I’m a big people person and love that I get to learn by co-operating with others.
“I love the close knit community in the course and I’ve made a ton of friends which has really helped my communication abilities.”

Moniecha – Musical Theatre

“My course has prepared me for university.”
Moniecha’s course has provided her with opportunities to perform on stage and take the lead behind the scenes. She was one of group of students from local colleges and schools that took part in a curtain raiser performance ahead of the New Adventures’ production of The Red Shoes at the Birmingham Hippodrome.
“I’ve always preferred working behind the scenes to being on stage,” said Moniecha. “From the age of 14, I began teaching choreography to schoolchildren through my own dance school. Teaching is my future.”
Moniecha has also developed as a performer.
“Studying every part of musical theatre at college has pushed me out of my comfort zone,” she added. “My confidence can be quite low when it comes to being in the spotlight so my tutors encouraged me to work on this. This really helped so that when we did a show at Christmas as I had a vocal solo.”
