Richard Foster, Deputy Head of the College, briefed the students about the principles of the college, the subject options available and the support programme that Tollbar Sixth Form students enjoy as they complete their A Level studies.
Charlie Brady, who is an ex-Somercotes Academy student now studying at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College, encouraged the visitors. He said: "I'm really enjoying it at Tollbar. I was made to feel very welcome. I made friends quickly. I'm studying Biology, Geography and Chemistry."
