Students who volunteer with Culture Club are organising a week of activities to celebrate the diversity of cultures within our community. They will be seeking support from students, staff and parents with this.

During the week beginning 22nd May they will be leading on a different activity each day to encourage us to learn more about each other’s cultural backgrounds. The week will include Acts of Worship, lesson activities, sharing cultural foods and many more activities. The week will finish with students and staff being invited to dress for school in clothes that represent their culture.

Students will be told more about this during form notices. If students would like to support the event they should speak to Mrs Nicolson and the Culture Club about the different ways that they can get involved.

During the last few surveys completed by students and parents, there has been a great demand for the introduction of the Duke of Edinburgh Award at CTK.

Last term we appointed Mr Josh Hudson as our DofE Co-ordinator. He is very excited to begin the preparation work for this.

We will be offering this opportunity to our students from September 2023. If your child is interested in getting involved or finding out more then they should email to express their interest.
