Lent Retreat

This years theme is Renewed in Hope

The Southwark Diocese Spirituality Commission are offering a retreat for Lent to parishes and individuals across the diocese. The focus is on the readings from each Sunday with reflection points and witness statements. This years theme is Renewed in Hope. It is lead by the Archbishop. Two students from CTK Aquinas are the witness statement for week 2. They talk about people who inspire them with hope.

Trip to Queens College at Oxford University

During half term our students at CTK Aquinas visited Queens College at Oxford University as part of the Lewisham Challenge programme. We received wonderful feedback from the students that took part about what a great time they had!

The Pathways to Law Programme

As part of the Lewisham Challenge Pathways to Law Programme,  we were delighted to  host lawyer Clive Stafford at an external speaker event for students from CTK Aquinas and the University of Goldsmiths. 

 The Pathways to Law Programme provides an opportunity for students to network with law professional and current degree students and to take part in a range of activities, including guest lectures, student panels and trips to law focused venues and universities. The programme helps to inspire the next generation of lawyers, critical thinkers and social justice advocates by exploring future study and career options.

Student Earns Place at Oxford University  

CTK Aquinas student Daniel said;

“I am thrilled to stand before you to share some exciting news. After months of hard work, determination, and perseverance, I am proud to say that I have been accepted into my dream university – Oxford University, to study Mathematics and Computer Science.

This has been a long and challenging journey, filled with countless hours of studying, researching, and lots of problem solving. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement of everyone who has been by my side throughout this process, and especially thankful to my school CTK Aquinas for providing me with all the help I needed. 

I know that the road ahead will not be easy, and I am fully prepared to face any challenges that come my way. But I am confident that the education and opportunities I will receive at Oxford will allow me to reach my full potential and achieve my goals.

I look forward to this new chapter in my life, and I am excited to see what the future holds.”

The Senior Mathematical Challenge, organised by the UKMT, is the UK’s flagship maths competition. 

Daniel has spent many months preparing for the challenge, which has required a high level of mathematical reasoning, and precision of thought and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems. Daniel was awarded the Gold Certificate, and as one of the highest performers, he was invited to Round 1 of the British Maths Olympiad. He was awarded a Certificate of Distinction and is now preparing for Round 2 of the British Maths Olympiad. Daniel has worked very hard towards these competitions and we are extremely proud of his achievements.
