“I’m passionate about baking so coming to Reaseheath was an easy choice – nowhere else offers such fantastic facilities and specialist staff. 

“I’ve had the best years of my life studying here. My courses have given me everything I wanted and more – I’ve learned so many new skills and made so many lifelong friends. 

“I’d already achieved a GCSE in Food Technology at school but at Reaseheath I’ve been able to concentrate on gaining the practical and business skills I’ll need to be a professional baker. I’ve really enjoyed our patisserie and cake decorating sessions and I was proud to gain the Bakery Student of the Year award. 

“I’d recommend Reaseheath College to anyone, it has a lovely campus and it’s a great place to learn.”
