I would just like to thank CCS for really nurturing and inspiring me. Five years on, at 23, I am one of the youngest elected politicians in the country for my local area in London. My teachers for Law, History, English Literature and Politics really fostered my potential and gave me skills I use on a daily basis.

I graduated in 2016 from Queen Mary University of London and now work in a National Charity coordinating wealthy donors with deserving projects. I am incredibly grateful I moved to CCS for sixth form.
