Dianna joined Halesowen College to study Animal Management, achieving a triple distinction and grades A and A* in GCSE Science and Maths. In order to be accepted for a Veterinary Science degree, Dianna then completed a Science A Level Programme and went on to study at Liverpool University.

‘It has always been my dream to work as a Veterinary Surgeon. There were struggles along the way and days when I thought I couldn’t make it, but I’m proof that hard work pays off, so I would encourage everyone to stick to their studies.’

Halesowen College is brilliant! It offers such a vast variety of courses to choose from, free college coaches coming from all over the West Midlands, and support funds that include free lunch every day. Along with all these, it's the people that truly make Halesowen College - the students, the staff and everyone in between give us confidence to, not only be ourselves, but be proud of it.
