“The Football Development Centre had a major influence in my decision to study at Sunderland College. The best thing about the Sport Development Centre is playing football and the free gym. There’s also good quality coaching and good equipment.
The sports facilities at Sunderland College are really good. There is a good variety and they are in good condition.”
