Our Students Current students share their experience of New Campus Basildon

Dominique Jess Grays, former pupil of Elizabeth Garret Anderson School

Tom Norris Basildon, former pupil of St Thomas More School

Perry Bray Wickford, former pupil of Bromfords School

“I’m studying the Level 3 BTEC in Health and Social Care. I started at NCB when it first opened and after completing the National Award I went on to study for the higher qualification of the National Certificate.

“I chose to study at NCB because it looked and felt different to other Colleges. The style of learning is much better for me and I feel like everyone is on the same level. I’m glad I came to NCB as I now feel part of a team.”

“I study the Level 2 BTEC in Sport at NCB. I started on the Level 1 course and have worked my way up to do the Level 3 course next year.

My time at NCB has been really enjoyable, I have met lots of great new people and feel like we have all grown as a family. I’ll definitely stay in touch with the friends that I have made here. When I leave I plan to go on to study child nursing at university.”

Tom is studying a Level 2 BTEC in Health and Social Care at New Campus Basildon. His main goal in life is to become a paramedic. Tom has also been offered a position at Basildon Hospital as a Health Care Support Worker.

I like NCB because it’s easy to get to and has a nice modern building with lots of computer space and you get to use laptops. Because it’s small you get to know people better and I have made lots of new friends. We have also been on some good trips to places like Thorpe Park and Stubbers Adventure Centre for team building activities, this is a really fun part of the course.
