We have had a large number of Year 11 students applying to remain with us in Sixth Form from September 2023 and we will find out on GCSE results day if they have been successful in gaining a place. However, there is still time to apply for a place in sixth form if your child already attends CTK. If you wish for your child to apply for a place, please contact Mr Reddington who will be able to provide them with an application form to complete.

Please remember what we will provide for your child if they choose to stay with us in sixth form:

  • Expert teaching with small class sizes ensuring that students gain good results
  • A strong sense of community – current sixth form students comment that they enjoy being separate from the other students but still a big part of the community at CTK
  • Excellent support – our teachers know your children and what helps them to learn, be successful and happy.

The step up to Post 16 education is difficult and each year, many students who leave to start at college end up coming back to our sixth form stating that they miss the huge level of support that staff at our school give them.  Please make contact with Mr Reddington should you have any questions about our sixth form.

CTK Care Charter Update

During each academic year, our sixth form students take part in the ‘CTK Care Charter’ where each students logs the hours that they volunteer within the school community.

The students lead on activities such as paired reading, delivering extra-curricular clubs, supporting students in lessons and mentoring students from younger year groups.

Rewards are given out at the end of each academic year based on the number of ‘logged’ hours that students undertake.

Students then use this information to support their applications for Universities, Higher-Level Apprenticeships or part time work during their studies.

Our sixth form students have also led a number of fundraising activities with the rest of the school, raising over £800 for Children in Need through events such as ‘Soak the Teacher’ and homemade bake sales.

With the help of their form tutors, our Year 13 students have recently submitted their UCAS and Higher-Level Apprenticeship applications. In recent weeks, students have had interviews at institutions such as Cambridge University and other Russell Group Universities. We are extremely proud of our sixth form students and wish them the best of luck in preparation for the next steps in their education.
