Meet our staff

Our dedicated tutors have a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, and will be with you every step of the way during your time at Warrington & Vale Royal College.

Below you will find some of our staff on what advice they would give to their younger self:


Andy Atkin
Curriculum Leader for Construction Trades

“Think long term. It might sound silly when you’re 16 but think how your chosen qualification will help you build your life. Work hard but enjoy college as you’ll never be 16 again. Grab every opportunity while you’re young, time flies too quickly.”



Scott Surtees
Chef Lecturer

“Follow the career YOU want, you have to enjoy it! If you can get up every morning and smile about going to work, it is the best feeling in the world. You need to have a passion for your chosen career. It’s not an easy ride but you will reap the rewards in the end.”


Jayne Fox
Curriculum Manager IT, Gaming,
Media, Graphics & Photography

“Life is a journey, don’t stress too much about the future, just enjoy the adventure. Focus on the subjects that you enjoy. One day you will be getting paid for doing just that.”
