Tenacity Pays Off!
Le,Teya joined City Gateway College to complete Year 11 in September 2013 and chose to stay with us for KS5. Her achievements include a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing, Functional Skills Level 2 English and this summer, a hard won pass in GCSE maths!
Having found maths really challenging over the years, Le,Teya was not at all pleased with the idea of working towards a GCSE retake. It was wonderful to see her face when she received her result and to know that the hard work and perseverance has paid off.

What have you learnt?
Customer Service skills, communication, being professional, sports and teamwork.
Having left us briefly in 2016 to gain a snow-boarding qualification, Le,Teya is now looking to develop her passion for snow boarding as well as secure a job or apprenticeship.
