We were delighted to welcome back to Sixth form yesterday evening, CTK alumni, who have studied Medicine or studied at Oxbridge to share their experiences with current Y12 students. The alumni represented a range of careers from junior doctors, to the media to politics.
Mrs Nadori, who organises the annual Alumni Evening, said: “ Our alumni offer great advice to students aspiring to study Medicine or applying to Oxbridge. It is always fascinating to hear how they have progressed in their respective careers.
Students from both CTK Emmanuel and CTK St Mary’s were taken to an escape room today to help them prepare for their BTEC Business “Developing a marketing campaign” exam.
The students were all expected to use their problem solving skills to break out of themed rooms and really enjoyed the experience. After this, the managing director of The Panic Room delivered a talk and Q&A on how they market their business which served as primary research for the students sitting the exam in January.
The trip was great fun and we wish the students all the best in their January exams!

“I'm aiming to study Computer Science at the University of Sheffield. At CTK all students are equally as motivated to do well, it's a good environment to be in. Teachers really try their hardest to make sure that their students achieve what they are capable of and ensure you get the best grades possible.”

“I have really enjoyed my course trips. Also, knowing that everyone else is starting Sixth Form at the same time as you, makes meeting new people and fitting in a lot easier and fun. My teachers have helped me overcome my fear of interacting during class discussions. They encouraged me to participate by giving presentations to the whole class, which boosted my confidence. Teachers will motivate you to achieve the best of your ability.”
