“I’ve only been here a few weeks but already I feel I belong – much more than I did in secondary school. There’s so much more freedom – and the staff care about you. It’s much more pastoral. Eventually I want to do avant-garde high fashion – sculpture – fashion as the art of the body. There’s nothing here to hold me back.”
Joslin Rashleigh, Pre-Degree Student
