Hear from our students

The Den is a fun environment. I like being able to use this as a base and have learnt a lot from being here - Leo

The Support Hub has helped me stay in school. Everything they say they will do, happens!

The teachers down the Support Hub offer a range of support and listen to everything that you have to say. They always find a way to make you feel better and give you the best advice - Rosie

The support system at John Ferneley College has really helped me, so I can feel comfortable and confident at all times - Sophia
