Matthew said “The staff at New College Durham Sixth Form, who taught me, were dedicated and very experienced in their respective subject - something not always evident at other colleges”. Matthew found the design of the college very appealing: “The campus is very modern and fit for purpose and definitely a defining factor in my initial choice of where to study when I was younger.” He goes on to say “I liked the architectural design of New College Durham and the range of courses on offer in the Sixth Form Centre.” His final comment is “To this day, I miss the college and the lecturers in it!”
