START OF THE NEW TERM
Start of Term January 2021
On 31st December we emailed all students and parents/carers, please check you emails regarding returning to Christ The King in January.
Please note all BTEC exams will take place as planned.
As you will have probably heard, the Government has recently announced that it is asking Schools/colleges to stagger the return of many students following the Christmas break. Monday 4th January is a staff INSET day with no lessons taking place. Online teaching will take place for most students from Tuesday 5th January. In practice this will mean that many students at CTK will take part in their lessons from home using Microsoft Teams and they should not attend Sixth Form. However, our Sixth Forms will remain open to students who:
Do not have access to a computer or the internet at home
Are the child of a key worker.
Government guidance may change so it is important to check your emails and our website for any updates but we expect to restart face to face teaching on site as follows:
Year 13 (Upper Sixth A Level and Upper Sixth BTEC) Monday 11th January,
Year 12 students including Level 1 & Level 2 Monday 18th January
If you are due to have any BTEC examinations in January these will carry on as planned. Please come into College for the times that have been communicated.
Students and parents/carers are asked to check their email accounts for more detailed information.

“I would recommend coming to CTK as the level of support offered by the subject teachers is exceptionally good. The best thing about CTK is being part of the friendliest group of students I've ever met. I'm applying to Oxford to study Psychology. ”

“My form tutor at CTK was exceptionally supportive every day. I value the freedom and independence of controlling my own learning, staying motivated whilst also having fun. The and people and sense of community provide a great environment. I have enjoyed extra opportunities such as joining summer schools and widening participation programs and becoming a student governor. I received lots of help from the careers guidance counsellor to help me realise what I want to do after sixth form. ”
