    • We don’t want our young people to set a limit on their aspirations and aim to open their eyes to the world around them and the opportunities that it has to offer. We want our students to continually strive for excellence and to get the best out of their education, and so will inspire and assist them in joining some of the world’s best students and the world’s best scholars, not just in the UK but anywhere in the world. As such, City College is able to offer students through the Sutton Trust charity the opportunity to fly to the US and visit some of the world-famous Ivy League universities, and they will see that these institutions are as much an option to them as anywhere closer to home. Let City College be a springboard to the sky, where anything is possible.
