    Cristopher's Story

    I was drawn to La Retraite 6 because of the range of enrichment opportunities and additional academic prospects I could experience. I believed these would be beneficial to both my own growth and to any future applications I made. The support I received has allowed me to fulfil my dream of taking up a degree apprenticeship at the Bank of New York Mellon.
