Learning to drive is something most people aim to achieve in life as it gives you a real sense of freedom and opens up endless opportunities across the country or even further.
One sixth form in Breightmet – Bolton St Catherine’s Academy take the same views and now offer their students free driving lessons and their own personal laptop.
They believe that all students should have access to these resources and no one student should feel disadvantaged. They currently offer five free driving lessons to all pupils and say it’s a life skill they believe each pupil should achieve to ensure they are ready for real life.
Pupils are welcoming the gesture, saying it will reduce the financial burden college life brings and will allow them to travel to job interviews and attend courses much further away.
