Best bits: The teachers and Personal Tutors. They understand the pressures of college life both academic and socially and help wherever they can. They also understand and help with any issues in our personal lives. The teachers and personal tutors are just great! Also more places for independent work. Whilst I am aware that at the moment it is not practical to extend the library, there needs to be more tables where students can go to work independently in a quiet area.

Best bits: Teaching in general is very good, the college seem to pair the weaker teachers with a very good teacher ( or just two very good teachers) so your overall level of teaching for each subject is high. Library has good atmosphere to work in.

Best bits: Great atmosphere. Students and staff are friendly and supportive and you feel really welcome from Day 1. Lessons are really well taught and enjoyable and there are so many opportunities for enrichment and further learning outside of the classroom. Science lessons are very practical, which is nice, and I would also like to mention the excellent languages department which was my main reason for joining the college and hasn't disappointed! Another advantage is the ubiquitousness of email, which means you are constantly up to date with all the goings on in college, without having to waste time in assemblies. Also, although I've only rated the on-site catering facilities as fair, we're so close to all the shops and cafés on Stourbridge High Street that this isn't a problem at all.

Best bits: The freedom to choose the best way you learn, utilising technology such as tablets in lessons. It's also great how everyone has the same booklets etc.

Best bits: The remarkable teaching standards. The brilliant workshops that are on every week to help me and the great attitudes that teachers and students have about their subject. The fact that my lessons are spread out, giving me free time to revise. Also the fact that the college is located directly in Stourbridge town, this means that I can easily get to college via Train and there are plenty of cheap places to go for lunch outside of the college with free Wi-Fi!

Best bits: Here, you get this independent experience which prepares you well for the future and university life. The timetables is very varied which in my point of view is very good as we don't have to be in all day everyday. The teachers treat you more like friends therefore you get this adult life feeling which is fantastic. Lessons can be hard but fun at the same time which is very essential.

Best bits: The best thing about the College are the relationships with teachers. Students can go to teaches for advice on a variety of different things and can be confident that teachers will be able to assist them. Also I believe that there is a good range of resources that student can use for study. For example, a well equipped library, a good computer room and the use of Moodle which is brilliant for independent work.

Best bits: The support given to every student is invaluable. Whether it be to do with learning or disabilities every student is catered for. The support staff are incredibly friendly and always available even after college via email if they are needed. All the teachers in my lessons have a variety of teaching styles that they adapt into each lesson so all the students are given the opportunity to learn at their best. Homework is given where necessary to aid and develop what has been taught in the classroom and is very important in the run up to our exams. The facilities within the college are great, and places for revision and extra study are ample. The library is huge and has lots of books for each subject and the staff are helpful.

Best bits: The support that we receive is at a very high standard, and I feel that if I have an issue, there is always someone there who I can discuss it with. I think that we have superb learning facilities, as there is always a learning space I can learn in, with our fantastic library and numerous computer rooms, it means I can use facilities whenever I want.

Best bits: At King Edward's there are plenty of opportunities which will benefit your future, for example the higher education scheme, schools experience, and lectures which help you decide which subjects interest you. There is a free counselling service which is massively beneficial because you know that there is always support there if you need it. The community here is encouraging and enthusiastic, so the lessons are never disrupted by people who are uninterested. There are very high teaching standards and the teachers are easy to cooperate with. We have tablets which help to make lessons interactive, for example in biology where we use Kahoot which is a quiz website.

Best bits: I have been able to join a variety of enrichments which I have thoroughly enjoyed and I also have been able to make new friends through these. Also I appreciate teachers learning our names because I feel I am cared about and that teachers are wanting to get to know us. Another reason is that I am overwhelmed with the facilities available and the local transport that I can use. Finally, I love the atmosphere as I feel like I'm part of a community that everyone is proud of and I don't feel singled out or as though I'm judged negatively.
