“I chose The Sixth Form Bolton because it has an excellent reputation in my local area, my older siblings came to this college and had a great experience. As part of my studies I really enjoyed the Physics Club and I am looking forward to propelling myself into Aerospace Engineering at The University of Manchester!”
