“I joined CTK Aquinas knowing that I wanted to study at a Russell Group university, but I was still unsure about which subjects to choose. The reality of my time at CTK was very fulfilling. My fondest memory was the interaction between community of friends, support services and teachers who utilised their knowledge and resources to aid my own understanding and achievements.

I enjoyed gaps in my timetable that allowed me to do independent study, geography course trips and Wednesday enrichment activities such as preparing for the Easter fashion show. Time-management is crucial for success in higher education and in the working world.

I am currently studying a degree in BA Global Health and Social Medicine at King’s College London. I hope to proceed into doing a Masters in MSc Health and Development at The London School of Economics and Political Science.”
