What’s it like in Sport?

- We have a Sport Academy to provide the opportunity to play competitive sport including football, basketball, netball and cricket with links to professional clubs such as QPR, Thames Valley Cavaliers and Uxbridge Cricket Club.
Uxbridge College is not only my local college but also the best college. The lecturers make learning fun and exciting with a good mix of theory and practical lessons.
