Youngsters sign up for further education at Darlington College
CROWDS of youngsters packed a Darlington college yesterday as they took the next step towards their future.
Hundreds of school leavers, having just received their GCSE results, descended up on Darlington College, on Haughton Road to sign up for further education.
The students – enrolling upon a variety of courses – were also given the chance to view the college’s new facilities, which have been updated over the summer.
New features include a student services centre, an expanded learning resource centre, a fully equipped science lab and an accessible sensory garden.
Shaunie Howlett, 16, enrolled on a uniformed services course after achieving a string of good grades in her GCSEs.
She said: “I want to become a police officer and am really looking forward to studying at Darlington College. “The facilities are amazing and I can’t wait to get started.”
The college is continuing to enrol. For more details of courses and opportunities call into the Haughton Road campus, phone 01325 503030, or log on to darlington.ac.uk.
