Vision & Ethos
CTK Emmanuel – a place to be the best you
As a Christ The King Sixth Form, CTK Emmanuel has a distinctive ethos underpinning all we do. Located on the Lewisham/Blackheath border in London, we are here to help you to prepare for a bright future in every way.
While we embrace and promote the value of qualifications, hard work, effort and academic achievement, we know they are not all you need to be the best you can be.
We want you to leave us as rounded, thoughtful, caring and confident adults equipped with the skills and attitudes you need to make a success of your life. You will be ready to make a positive contribution to society.
Through our character education programme, The CTK Graces, you will develop the traits and attributes of grit, respect, assurance, curiosity, endeavour and self-control, so you have the qualities you need to be discerning and to thrive in the highly competitive world that awaits you. You will take part in a learning programme that invites you to consider the personal, spiritual and moral issues you will face in the future.
Our tutorial and pastoral support systems ensure you will be nurtured and valued as an individual.
CTK Emmanuel fosters values of mutual respect and positive encouragement. We are a Catholic Sixth Form that welcomes students of every faith and none at all.
This distinctive ethos was recognised by Ofsted in its most recent inspection: ‘The College fosters a spirit of generosity and love’.
Samuel EMMANUEL Course: BTEC Engineering
“My experience at CTK has improved my sense of self-worth and the one-to-one communication has helped me understand what I need to do to achieve my goals. I'm aiming to go to Queen Mary's University of London to study Physics and Aerospace Engineering. My advice to new students would be to enjoy the experience, make friends with people and study hard to achieve your goals.”
