Simone has just graduated from Capel, she says:

I knew school wasn’t for me, I came to Capel to do the Animal Management Advanced Diploma. I found the practical elements to the course intriguing, from working with the animals to completing lab experiments with bacteria. I loved my course and am working towards becoming a veterinary surgeon and studying at the Royal Veterinary College. I couldn’t have achieved this without Capel.”
