Glyn Jones, Assistant Principal for A Levels said: “Meeting up again with former students, seeing them so animated after experiencing their first term at universities all around the country, was  very enjoyable. The students, supported by their families, friends and former College tutors, were excited to be back - it is clear they have all made an easy transition from College to university. All the tutors within the College’s A Level Faculty are extremely proud of their achievements.”
