What the students say (Student Survey)
Absolutely loved studying Maths at St Doms – by far my favourite subject. Might be biased about how I feel about the department because I actually enjoyed the subject, but I do think the staff are brilliant
What Ofsted say
The College is particularly effective at enabling students to gain confidence and achieve their potential .
