Michael described his time at Hartlepool Sixth Form as transforming, educational and fun. He progressed to Staffordshire University to study Media (Film) Production.

He said:

“I decided to study at Hartlepool Sixth Form as I was excited at the prospect of studying music, film and media all together. I enjoyed working with the teachers and staff at Hartlepool Sixth Form as I found them approachable at all times, and friendly and enthusiastic.

The course opened up a lot of opportunities for me to explore some of my favourite films and work out what makes them so powerful and engaging. I always felt like I was surrounded by people, staff and fellow students, who shared the same enthusiasm as I did.

The campus felt incredibly refreshing and a place to feel at ease. There was great editing facilities with technicians and staff who were kindly willing to take time to teach you.

I frequently performed music outside of study, and through the college I got to perform with various talented musicians that otherwise I would not have had the chance to meet.

Before my time at Hartlepool Sixth Form, I had sometimes struggled with keeping focused, however the patience and the enthusiasm of the staff helped me develop and prepared me completely for a career in my dream job!”
