A mum says she is delighted her daughter’s place at college has been confirmed.
The Telegraph reported Georgie Ready, 18, was initially turned away from a beauty course at Tresham College on her first day because she was unable to hold a pot of nail varnish in her left hand. This was despite no concerns being raised at an open day.
But mum Lynn says the college has reversed that decision – and Georgie will start the course tomorrow (Monday).
“They have designed a course specifically for Georgie’s needs,” she said. “They have made a bad situation better, which I am really pleased about. Georgie is happy, I am happy.
“I would just really like to thank everyone for their support and the good wishes they sent to the house for Georgie, which kept her spirits up.”
College principal Stuart Wesselby has apologised for confusion during enrolment.
He added: “At no point was Miss Ready advised that she would be unable to join a course to study beauty and we have now met with Miss Ready to assure her and her family that she will continue to be given every support by Tresham when she returns to study with us next week.”
