I am studying a distance learning course - MSc in S&C. Going into the actual facility just a couple of times per year. Great place and beautiful gym and lab.

Currently studying an ITEC diploma in Anatomy, Physiology and Massage... The teachers, Lynda and Amy are lovely; Lynda is very knowledgable and makes the Anatomy module interesting and understandable. Amy is really patient and friendly which makes the massage module lots of fun. The classes are available on a Wednesday or Saturday and regardless of which day you've signed up for, if you can't make one week, you can attend on the alternative day - they're really flexible. There is an abundance of learning resources available and someone to email if you've got any queries. I'd really recommend both of these modules :)

I attended St. Mary's in 1978/9. Academic standards were uniformly low. It was a "PE" college, or at least felt like one and the dominant student culture was loud and boorish. Even female students routinely sang "Sunday after supper..." style rugby songs in the bar. There was no culture of academic excellence at all just a stench of drunken cynicism and everything that goes with it. I was a post-grad PGCE student and received the most out-dated and flawed preparation for the teaching profession imaginable. Academic standards were appalling with the exception of one lecturer, Teresa O'Donovan whose history of Education studies stood out from the morass of waffle and flim-flam which characterised the rest of my studies, Drama and Economics/Social Studies as well as Philosophy of Education. Teaching practice was badly supervised and meaningless. The college was in the process of losing its charter from London Univ. and proceed under the aegis of Sussex Univ for the next period. I could undrstand why. In my day it seemed to thrive on the idea that training is irrelevant and therefore (of those who actually went into teaching - and at least a third didn't) sent thousands of semi-trained people into largely Catholic schools to get the profession and the Comprehensive system a bad name, leading to the situation we have today with outright contempt for teachers and education and the decimation of teacher training and educational opportunities for all but the most privileged. Before that we were to witness the phenomenon of Head teachers who were former PE students. I leave you to draw the conclusion. Perhaps St. Mary's was not alone in its decadence but surely the most flagrantly neglectful of its mission to our education system and duty to the profession. I cannot forgive St. Mary's for its shortcomings and only hope that today the failures of the past are part of its history and not its current identity. Contrary to popular myth, training is everything in education which fosters solidarity and excellence. It's all history now and I'm certain times will have changed for the better. Decadence must be remembered. Standards have to be maintained not allowed to atrophy. That takes hard work.

I will never forget the years spent here. Sure a close community and some incredible tutors. The sporting setup is top of the range and the coaches are unparalleled. I studied sports science and have gained so much from this for my life path.

Warm, friendly, welcoming, caring, close knit community. staff and students very helpful. informative. students whose parents earn just above and over 42,600 disadvantaged as do not qualify for any bursaries or scholarships, not even for £1,000 gift given to students with proven consistent outstanding academic ability.
