The former Woodhey High School pupil said: “I want to thank all my tutors who have always been really supportive of me and helping me to progress.”

Olivia Garrity is a first year Engineering student. The former St Gabriel’s RC High School pupil said she loves how the course has helped develop her passion for engineering. Olivia also has big ambitions for the future, saying: “Once I’ve finished at Bury College, I want to go to university before hopefully progressing onto a job working with environment or renewable energy.”
