“I would advocate revising from the very beginning and not leaving it too late, reviewing what you have learned as you go along. Help and support is always available, and teachers will go above and beyond to help you in any way they can.”
Ashraf achieved truly outstanding results with 9999998887. He is delighted to be able to start at CCF Sixth Form in September to study maths, further maths, physics and chemistry. Ashraf is aiming high and hopes to read Engineering at university after his A levels.
Don’t be afraid to be independent. The teachers want you to flourish and will be there to encourage and support you every step of the way. They have the knowledge, expertise and resources to ensure you have the opportunity to achieve your best.
Former Dollis Junior pupil, Daniel, achieved impressive results including 977766555.

Daniel hopes to study Physiotherapy at university after his A levels.
My advice to younger pupils would be to try and stay on top of revision from the beginning of Year 11. The teachers changed my mindset towards learning, so I was ready and prepared to take on the challenges of GCSEs and I am very grateful to them for always believing in me.
Former Goldbeaters pupil Caspar achieved exceptional results across the board: 9999999988. Caspar is a driven and ambitious pupil who is looking forward to studying maths, further maths, physics and computer science at A Level. He hopes to read Engineering at university after studying at CCF Sixth Form.
The teachers at CCF are extremely supportive and provided lots of opportunities to boost learning and enhance my school experience. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to represent the school at the international summit in Florida through the Gifted and Talented Programme. My advice to younger pupils is to take what your teachers say seriously. They want you to do your absolute best.
Muwanda is thrilled to have achieved outstanding results across the board including 9999988887. He is excited to start the next stage of his education at CCF Sixth Form studying chemistry, maths, biology and psychology. Muwanda hopes to attend university after his A levels to read one of the sciences and is interested in a career in research.
I strongly advise younger pupils to not only keep on top of their work but ensure you understand what you are learning. Once you understand the basics you can apply it to the whole subject! I can’t thank the staff at CCF enough for the level of support I have received so far; because of this, CCF Sixth Form is the only place I want to study for my A levels!
Sayed, former Martin Primary School pupil, was ecstatic to learn that he achieved fantastic GCSE grades and is looking forward to studying maths, biology and chemistry at CCF Sixth Form. He aspires to attend university after his A levels to study Dentistry. One of his proudest moments at CCF is going from set 4 in maths to achieving a grade 8 at GCSE and thanks his teacher Mr Sarabi for always believing in him.
I can’t thank the teachers at CCF enough for inspiring me and for offering fantastic support from the moment I started school. My advice to younger pupils is to aim high at all times because the school won’t let you down.
Baheer joined CCF from Sunnyfields Primary School in Year 7 and today was delighted with his results, achieving 9887766665. With his sights set on studying Medicine at university, he is excited to start CCF Sixth Form in September and has no doubt that the Sixth Form staff will support him in achieving his dream.
The school has given me a multitude of resources, both online and offline, to achieve the grades I have today. My advice to others would be to start revising early, make use of the vast resources and never give up!
Luke is thrilled with the level of support he received to achieve his phenomenal results. He is delighted to accept his place at the University of Oxford in September to study Chemistry. Luke would like to thank the CCF teachers who go above and beyond to assist their students in not only their academic studies, but also their wellbeing.
It’s a dream come true to study Chemistry at Oxford. I eventually want to move into research and medicine. I have always been passionate about helping people and hope to one day give back. I can’t imagine accomplishing everything I have without being at CCF. It’s a small sixth form, so every teacher knows who you are and what you need – they are truly exceptional, and the level of support is more than I could have ever dreamed of.
Anne is ecstatic to discover that she has secured a place at her first choice university, Birmingham, to study Biomedical Science. She attained superb results in her A levels and is now delighted to be able to follow her dreams into the world of medicine.
Attending CCF has helped me to progress to the next stage because the teachers are so encouraging, the learning is personalised, and the teachers and support teams become your family. It is a unique place to study where everyone truly wants each other to succeed and be pushed and challenged to be the best versions of themselves.
Junaid is looking forward to his future at Bristol University having achieved brilliant grades needed to study English. His advice to younger students is to not waste any time when starting revision and always believe in yourself and what you can achieve. Nothing is out of reach.
I can’t wait to study English at university because I’ve always been interested in public relations, thanks to some really positive work experience during my time at CCF. My dream is to work in the fashion or music industry. CCF has prepared me for this next chapter and I will always be grateful to the staff for their unrivalled support and reassurance in what was a very stressful and worrying time. They have been there for every student every step of the way.
Natalie is delighted to have been accepted into Anglia Ruskin University to study Biomedical Science. She achieved fantastic results and looks forward to starting the next step of her journey in September. Her advice to students starting their A Levels is to persevere and be independent. If this year has taught her anything, it is to prepare as early as possible and ensure that you ask for help and support when you need it. CCF staff are always available.
I would like to thank the supportive staff at CCF. My experience would have been so different if I had stayed at my previous school. I have been challenged to think differently, whilst also supported to find other interests to complement my studies. The enrichment available at CCF has allowed me to develop other passions and skillsets, including being able to participate in multiple music productions which I have loved.
With aspirations of a career in Microbiology, Dakol is one step closer after securing a place at the prestigious University of Cambridge to study Natural Sciences. Dakol cannot thank the staff and students at CCF Sixth Form enough for making his time here such a memorable one. He praised the incredible amount of support that he received with his studies, personal development and university applications, commenting that he “really can’t overstate the importance of a supportive environment during times that will affect your future.”
I am grateful for my Chemistry teacher, Mr Payne, who helped me realise my love for Chemistry and always stressed the importance of critical thinking, logic and exam technique. He was such an influence on me throughout my 7 years at CCF. Being a relatively small Sixth Form meant there is a stronger sense of community and belonging at CCF. I have enjoyed all the time that I have spent with my friends, exploring and discussing things beyond the syllabus, not because it would help us academically, but because we were driven by curiosity.
