In 2015 we were super proud and absolutely thrilled to have been selected as winners of Theo Paphitis' #SBS (Small Business Sunday).  The recognition and support from Theo himself, along with the entire #SBS community, is an incredible honour that fills us with immense pride. #SBS is a fantastic initiative founded by entrepreneur and former Dragon's Den star, Theo Paphitis. This initiative was created to celebrate and support small businesses across the UK.  Theo personally selects a handful of small businesses that stand out and excel in their respective fields. Being chosen as an #SBS winner is a testament to the dedication and hard work from our students and staff ; and also the uniqueness of our business.  We believe that the #SBS win is as much yours as it is ours, and we can't thank you enough for being a part of this incredible ride.
