We were delighted to see Gurkiran Kalsi receive a 2017 CIFE Award for her exceptional contribution to life at Chelsea College. She received the award from CIFE President Lord Lexden at a ceremony in the House of Lords this April.

Gurkiran Kalsi receives a 2017 CIFE AwardGurkiran is an exceptional young woman from Welling in London. She is 18, but has already achieved 13 A or A* grades at GCSE, and is very well liked by students and teachers alike. She shares with her brother (another former Chelsea Independent College student who became a high achiever with us) a disarming modesty and serious commitment to her subjects. She is particularly good at economics, but is also a talented Hispanophone linguist and mathematician. Gurkiran currently holds very good university offers and we are delighted to have her as a Chelsea student.
