What Our Students Say
There is a strong sense of community in this college and I feel that I can rely on my teachers whenever I need help. Computer Science is particularly interesting, more than the other subjects I study, because I can develop my problem solving skills which can be applied to any subject or area of my life. This becomes handy when asked to solve real world problems in my Tomorrow’s Engineers (Enrichment) challenges. After leaving Carmel, I hope to go to university to study for an Engineering based degree. Although I haven’t decided yet, I think I would enjoy Software Engineering as I like coding. Unlike the sciences, most of the topics you study at A Level can be useful in later life especially if you intend using lots of technology in the future. Although Computer science is challenging, you will enjoy it.
