How did Callywith support you in your application to university?

I started Callywith College with a plan to study finance, but I never imagined this would be at a university in the USA. I played for the 1st football team at Callywith and the College invited Future Elite Sports to speak to Football Academy students about sport scholarship opportunities on offer in America and how we could apply.

Callywith helped me massively in achieving this as the College provides great facilities, great coaching from Football Coach Tim Nixon who was also a great role model and influence to me over the my two years at Callywith.
