Adam described Hartlepool Sixth Form as challenging, exciting and enjoyable.

He said: “I chose Hartlepool Sixth Form due to its great reputation, results record and due to the fact it was well situated in the local area.

The thing I liked best about the College was the good atmosphere. The facilities were great and the teaching was also of a high standard.

I found that the teachers at the College could recognise a student’s potential, understand an individual’s level of knowledge and ensured everyone was challenged in their studies. I also think that the teachers were skilled in challenging any complacency in the student’s work.

In terms of the course, a number of aspects were outstanding. The quality of teaching and the variety of teaching methods stood out as excellent. There was also a good variety of practical work, demonstrations, coursework, written study and visual learning across the topics I selected.”

After leaving sixth form, he attended Newcastle University to study a 4 year Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering.
