Welcome to a new year at Coln House. I consider myself fortunate to be part of this attractive and interesting establishment. I intend to promote a year of learning, recreation, sport and above all enjoyable and hard working achievement.
Our aims reflect our beliefs in equipping individuals with the skills to make a success of their lives. To secure useful and rewarding work, make and sustain good relationships and contribute positively to their communities.
In our fast moving and challenging world qualifications and social skills open doors and increases opportunities, but does not guarantee success. Our focus will be on learning how to be the best we can be.
I look forward to joining you all to lead and inspire you to enjoy your time here and ensure that you leave prepared for the next phase of your lives.
