"As well as offering Degrees, with 20% of HE students achieving First Class Honours, we offer 28 A Levels, provide more than 100 vocational courses, over 50 apprenticeships and work with around 1,000 employers.
"It is thanks to the expertise of our staff that we can offer such consistently high teaching that makes Weston College so attractive."
