Results Day 2021
Results day 2021 success at Christ the King Sixth Forms
Another great year of results and prestigious university designations for CTK students
Students and staff at Christ the King Sixth Forms celebrated another year of examination results at all three sixth forms, with students overcoming the challenges presented by Covid19 to demonstrate grit and resilience and land top grades and university places.
Lorena Piedrahita-Lopez landed a place at her dream university, Cambridge to study Psychology and was one of only three students to be awarded a CTK Metric Capital scholarship. Lorena is one step closer to her mission to create more equal access to psychological therapies in the UK, after achieving top grades of A*AA in A Level English Literature, Psychology and Law at Christ the King Sixth Form in South London.
Lorena says; “I’d like to go into therapy with a specific aim to teach psychology therapy in Spanish. I believe that therapy in the UK should be available in other languages. I really enjoy helping others and I want to do things in other languages to support my own Latin community here in London. I believe in making small changes in our society which can have a big impact. What drives me is to make our world more inclusive, a little step at a time.”
