Head of Sixth Form, Mr Nielsen commented:
These are outstanding results and in such difficult times. We have watched our students grow to believe in themselves and their abilities to go above and beyond what they thought was possible. They have worked incredibly hard and shown resilience, determination and real passion in their studies and personal development. We look forward to welcoming them back as members of our alumni to inspire the next generation!
Headteacher, Mr Olusanya said:
It has been inspiring to see our students secure sought-after places at Russell Group Universities. We are all incredibly proud of their achievements and are full of admiration for the goals and career aspirations they have set themselves to be successful in the next exciting chapters of their lives. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated staff; the students heap praise on the high quality of teaching and their commitment to nurture, guide and encourage. We are so fortunate to have this dedicated sixth form team where everyone has gone the extra mile and have enabled this cohort to fulfil their potential.
Students are thrilled to be accepting places at their first choice universities, the majority Russell Group Universities, and embarking on exciting apprenticeships and careers. We are incredibly proud of our students who have achieved across a range of subjects, with some excellent individual performances:
Our superb and ambitious Head Boy Marko is delighted to have achieved 2 A*s and 1 A in Maths, Physics and Chemistry. He will begin his next chapter at Loughborough University in September to study Automotive Engineering. Marko is excited to embark on a lifelong adventure to create a new source of fuel in the future! His advice to younger students is to set realistic targets for your subjects and spend time building lasting bonds and friendships with your peers as you will rely on them for support along the way. Marko praised the incredible teachers from the moment he started at CCF and stated that they not only help you to secure the grades you need they also guide you to develop the skills that you’ll need to get into your chosen field or career pathway.
My journey at CCF has given me some of my greatest memories and I have achieved more than I ever thought possible. This is because of the teachers and the learning culture CCF have created and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Younes achieved three ‘ology’ A Levels with two As in Psychology and Sociology and a B in Biology. Younes also achieved a B in the Extended Project Qualification with an essay on ‘How human nature affects marine ecosystems’. He will now go on and study Marine Biology at either Newcastle or Exeter. His ambition comes from a fascination with nature and a love of methodology and history, and Younes wants to pursue a unique career as a Marine Archaeologist.
Wow - I am ecstatic! The staff at CCF go above and beyond and have supported me in every single way – more than I could have ever asked for. Nothing phases these remarkable teachers – they made us all believe that everything is possible.
Mohammed secured three A Levels: an A in Maths and two Bs in Physics and Further Maths. Mohammed will be studying Aerospace Engineering at the University of Manchester and his lifelong dream is to work in aerospace and improving aeronautics. One of Mohammed’s greatest achievements at CCF was gaining a place on the prestigious King’s College K+ programme in Year 12 that helped support his university application and provided the skills needed to reach his full potential as an undergraduate student.
I can’t thank the teachers and staff at CCF enough, we were always their priority and they worked tirelessly, especially during the pandemic, and I will be forever grateful. I’m aiming high now and my ambition is to one day work for NASA!
