CTK Emmanuel is part of Christ the King Sixth Forms, a group of highly successful sixth forms in Lewisham, Brockley and Sidcup.
BTECs as your route to respected universities
You will be encouraged to follow in the footsteps of many former Christ the King students who have gone on to study at top universities – from Engineering at Durham, to Nursing at Kings College London, to French and Politics at Nottingham, Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy at Queen Mary’s, Law and Criminology at the University of Sheffield, Biomedical Science at Warwick and Population Health at University College London.
University subjects that our Professional Graduate Programme students go on to study include Children’s Nursing, Adult Nursing, Medical Science, Diagnostic and Imaging Radiography, Pharmacy Foundation, Dental Hygiene & Dental Therapy, Childhood & Youth Social Policy for Social Work, Speech & Language Therapy and Podiatry.
Our advanced BTEC programmes are a great route to university for ambitious students. They are equivalent to three A Levels and attract the same UCAS points. For example, a triple distinction star grade on a BTEC Technical Advanced Diploma will be awarded the same UCAS points as three A* grades at A Level.
This is why almost 90% of CTK level 3 BTEC students go on to universities, including those in the prestigious Russell Group. Recently, nearly half of all Christ the King Sixth Form students who were accepted into a Russell Group university had studied BTECs.
BTEC results in our most recent cohort of students were once again exceptional and our Extended Diploma students achieved a 99.6% achievement rate, with almost 90% going on to university
You will be inspired to aim high and realise your ambitions, and you will graduate ready to embrace your future. Find out which subjects you could study at CTK Emmanuel on our courses page.

Can I get into a good university with BTECs or do I need A-Levels?
More and more students are choosing to study BTECs rather than A-Levels before going to university.
