Nestled in the Leicestershire countryside is probably one of the finest 6th Form Colleges in the UK – a facility which we as a county should be rightly proud of. During my visit I was seriously impressed with the character of the students and staff alike at this outstanding institution. Drawing students from the most diverse backgrounds imaginable, Welbeck is preparing the next generation of technical & engineering officers for our armed forces and MOD Civil Service. The standards set by the college are extremely high and the students I met were impressive individuals – highly motivated and full of character. Thank you to the Principal, Peter Middleton, his staff and students who took the time to introduce me to Welbeck.
