I have been able to pursue my passion, win a place at the National Youth Film Academy and secure a job at a leading marketing agency. This would not have been possible without Culford's support.

Culford has influenced me in such a positive way, especially Mr Dodd. He taught me so much about the game of golf and passed on valuable knowledge I will take with me as I head to America.

Culford has shown me there is more to life than academics. It's important to balance your time and make time for your friends.
