CTK AQUINAS HOLDS ITS SEPTEMBER OPEN DAY!
CTK Aquinas was the first of the CTK Open Day events to take place. The event went ahead on Saturday 30th September where we were joined by over 160 prospective students.
The student ambassadors worked tirelessly and professionally to chauffeur individual groups of prospective students and their parents/carers around the building as they answered questions and showed our guests to the relevant subject areas.
Staff also played a key role on the day, interacting with interested students and taking them through the subject course. Some subject ambassadors remained in their classrooms to support their teachers and give the prospective students a real feel of what it would be like to study A Levels courses at CTK Aquinas by giving them an introduction to the classroom facilities as well as showcasing their fantastic work.
Principal talks were conducted by site principal Ms. Holly Power and Executive Principal Shireen Razey. These sessions offered a comprehensive overview of the diverse subjects and opportunities available at CTK Aquinas. The feedback from our visitors was overwhelmingly positive, reflecting their satisfaction with the event.
We extend our gratitude to the students and staff whose efforts contributed to the event’s success. A heartfelt thank you to the prospective students and parents/carers for their delightful presence and participation.

“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.
