Rupert says …
“Working with CTK students and staff has been an inspiration for me and is one of the best things I have done. CTK is a true London institution; helping young Londoners realise their full potential. A specialist in sixth form education for the communities we serve and a specialist equally in aspirational academic education and in aspirational vocational education. I never fail to be impressed by our brilliant students”.

“I would recommend coming to CTK as the level of support offered by the subject teachers is exceptionally good. The best thing about CTK is being part of the friendliest group of students I've ever met. I'm applying to Oxford to study Psychology. ”

The and people and sense of community provide a great environment. I have enjoyed extra opportunities such as joining summer schools and widening participation programs and becoming a student governor.
