Glyn Jones, Vice Principal said: “Thiis superb occasion gives us an opportunity to meet up again with former students.  Seeing them so excited to share their first experiences of universities  (from all around the country),  is so heart-warming. The students, supported by their families, friends and former College tutors, are excited to be back in York and it is clear they have all made an easy transition from College to university. Everyone from the College’s A Level Faculty is very proud of their achievements.”
