Commenting on her time at Greenhead, Susie said:

“The two years I spent at Greenhead College were undoubtedly what kick-started my career and I am proud to be an alumni. I was inspired by all my tutors, but particularly by my English tutor whose energy and enthusiasm was what drove me to study the subject at University. Besides this though, I always felt the staff at Greenhead always had time for each individual student and believed in everyone’s ability.”
