The teachers can focus on each student in a small class which is effective in ensuring that everyone fully understands what they have been taught. The teachers at CCSS are very helpful. They prepare excellent teaching materials, such as work sheets and presentations, which has really helped me to understand the challenging content.

There are many positives of studying at CCSS this includes the excellent teachers and the small class sizes, there are only a few of us in class and we get a lot of attention.

The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and will succeed in answering even the most obscure questions. Furthermore, the teachers still encourage an independent style of learning, which is vital preparation for university. Crucially, in the classroom, you feel that no question is a “stupid” or “irrelevant” question; this is essential in provoking debate and encouraging students to think critically and analytically.
