Marina Kotsa, 19, joined our Sixth Form from Greece, and has excelled in her short time with us. She gained an impressive A* in Greek, A grades in Maths and Spanish, and B grades in Business Studies and Further Maths. She told us

"When I first saw my results I was pleased and excited; although I gave everything and did whatever I could, I was not expecting such good results!

In the first place you need to enjoy your subjects, but the support I had from the teachers made the road to university much more enjoyable. I want to thank the school and its staff so much for making me feel welcome. My success is due to the guidance and motivation I've been given at LCA."

Marina has accepted a place at the University of York, to read Economics.

Good luck to all our students in their forthcoming adventures!
