    Hiii.

    I just wondered if anyone here goes to the City and Islington College?
    I might be starting there in September.
    Just wondered if you had any info that would be useful.
    Thanks

    It depends, purely on your timetable. It's unlikely though.

    Haha, like all of my friend group is going plus a lot of people from other schools around here...sort of wish I didn't know anyone though for more of a fresh start you know? I was considering going La Swap for that reason but it's a pain to get to, so you're lucky in a way you don't know anyone Which subjects are you taking?

    I got offered a place at La Swap but I think I like City and Islington more. I guess in a way I'm lucky, yeah. I'm taking Geography, French, Politics and Business Studies, how about you?

    I'm taking English Lit, French, History, Film Studies & either Economics or Art. Mostly totally different subjects from you, but hey always a chance we'd end up in the same French class =p

    It depends, one day per week you'll start at 1pm but mostly end at 5pm. Only some people get Tuesday off which means you'll literally end 5pm every other day of the week so you wouldn't want a Tuesday off really. Wednesday 3pm + is off because that's enrichment time.

    Geography's really good, Mike's the only Geography teacher at CNI and he's an excellent teacher ^-^ you'll be going Suffolk which was pretty decent.

    Thanks for that. I'm pretty excited to start. I'm guessing you go to the college? What's it like? How are the students and teachers and all that?

    Teachers are good, some better than others. Students range from the very academic, to the few who are there purely to socialise. PM me for further info :yep:

    Yeah, I've just finished AS. It depends really on the teachers, it's usually the part timers not being really great teachers unless they're really experienced. Students are fine also but it's all subjective x]

    I heard...maybe someone can confirm or not, that there 2 short days (tuesday and wednesday) finish at 3
    2 long days Monday and Thursday finish at 5
    and Friiday finish at 4
    but you dont necessarily finish at these times because it depends on ur timetable/ur subjects, but from my calculations, you only finish one day at 5, (as you would get 1 morning, 1 afternoon off each week)
