Chelsea Craven attended All Saints' Academy Sixth Form from 2013 – 2014. Chelsea started at ASA in the middle of Year 12 having joined us from Utah in America. She had only 17 weeks to study for her first exams in Year 12.
Chelsea studied Media Studies, English Literature and Photography. During her time at All Saints' Academy Sixth Form Chelsea got involved in lots of enrichment opportunities such as writing for the school newspaper, work experience at the Gloucestershire Echo, visiting the Gems TV studios, interviewing auditionees for Britain's Got Talent auditions and writing for the Cheltenham Science Festival.
After completing Year 13 Chelsea applied for the opportunity to take part in a mission trip. She was accepted and undertook a 18-month mission trip in Brazil! Chelsea spread the message of hope to the local people she met.
Whilst Chelsea was in Brazil All Saints' helped her parents in starting the university application process again. Chelsea was accepted onto a Journalism course at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN).
'I am forever thankful to All Saints' Academy. The Sixth Form opened doors for me that other schools closed. With the help of amazing staff I was given direction and opportunities to fulfil my potential, this was beneficial to me starting mid year from overseas. I needed a place to study that were interested in me and my future, All Saints' definitely were.'
Chelsea also currently volunteers for the University radio station – Pulse Radio and has her own show on a Friday morning from 9am – 11am, please see her facebook page here:

Chelsea will return to start her next term at university on 16th January.
Chelsea hopes to go into Broadcast Journalism following her degree course. With her determination and positive attitude we are positive Chelsea is destined for greatness!
