Harry Ashton

“I chose to study through Newbury College because the course offered at Kingsclere PA is really specialised. There are a good number of contact hours per week with industry professionals, so the training is relevant and of a high level. The training and skills I’ve learnt have given me the confidence to be audition ready for degree courses.”
