In what ways have your teachers supported you at CTK?
“My teachers at CTK are amazing! They are always willing to talk me through difficult concepts by simplifying them and ensuring that I develop my understanding of them.”
What are you looking forward to most at Oxford University?
“At Oxford I hope to network with new people and also acquire more specialist skills, such as programming.”
What are your plans after you finish further education?
“I really aspire to be an engineer at Telsa, that would be amazing!”
What would you say to students who wish to study at CTK in the future?

Well done Tony; we hope you enjoy your course at Oxford University and have a great time.

“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.
