What Our Students Say

I enjoy the freedom and independence that studying at Carmel enables you to have. I enjoy studying Geography as it gives you an awareness of wider issues that affect the world, both physical and human. I would recommend it as all the information learnt is relevant and can be accessed easily. I have taken part in fieldwork in the Morecambe Bay area that allowed me to develop skills that will be useful in further fieldwork I will take part in at university.
