They joined in with an A-Level lesson to get a sense of the different teaching style used at this level.

Richard Foster, deputy head at the college, briefed the students about the principles of the college, the subject options available, and the support programme,

Charlie Brady, an ex-Somercotes Academy student now studying at the college, told the visiting students: “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.”
