Why do our students select PGS?

  • I know the teachers and the teachers know me

  • The support available

  • Most comfortable choice

  • PGS is local

  • To learn more about the subjects I love

  • To be with friends

  • Familiarity

  • A few more years education will send me into a job with the best results I am capable of

  • I know everyone here and I feel confident about learning here

  • I need A Levels to get on the course I need/want

  • I want better grades

  • There are a range of qualifications available

  • Offers courses I want to take

  • Teachers know you personally – strengths and weaknesses and how to help you improve

  • I trust the teachers

  • Provides a better education

  • It’s better to get A Levels than not

  • To get the qualifications to do my chosen career

  • Probably the best education for A Levels

  • Will look more impressive on my CV

  • Opens up a lot of choices

  • Extra support

  • Parental encouragement

  • There is no need to go elsewhere, everything I need is here
