Our shooting stars club is now into its second block here at CTK and the response to the programme has been fantastic! The girls have enjoyed the marvel - themed 'Guardians of the Galaxy' sessions and resources. Whilst having fun and moving through the story each week, the players have the chance to develop social, physical, technical and tactical skills, with an aim of developing a passion for the game of football. The girls are on fire! Keep your eye out for more sessions on offer throughout the year!

The u11 girls represented school in the recent Burnley schools' football tournament at Burnley College. The girls went into the tournament with a squad of mixed - experienced players. A hugely impressive set of performances followed with CTK winning 3 of their 5 games and drawing in one of the remaining two fixtures. We were very unluckly to have just missed out on qualifying for the next round, nethertheless the girls conducted themselves and played briliantly! Well done to all and special mention to the two superstar badge winners, Anna and Lily! Well done girls!

Our year 5 and 6 boys football team enjoyed an excellent result in the recent Danone Nations cup qualifiers, at Burnley College. Impressively, the team topped their group with an incredible unbeaten performance, winning all 4 games and conceding 0 goals with 4 clean sheets! A huge well done to goalkeeper Kai who pulled out some top drawer saves in a tightly contested game against St Leonards!

In the other games the goals flowed as Cooper and Oliver saw their quality efforts fly into to net with style. CTK player of the match Kuba was instrumental as a playmaker who was at heart of most of our good play, helping launch numerous attacks. Well done to the other schools in our group, and to the SSP and the students of Burnley College who ran the event. On to the next round!

There was excitement in the air as the new sports clubs started in school last week. The children were thrilled to attend the Archery club, in which they performed impressively! Lots of smiling faces and flying arrows filled the school hall! The sport is just one of the many and varied club offers we send out each term, so please keep your eyes peeled for the forms coming out.

There are a few limited spaces on some of the clubs running this term, for enquiries, contact Mr Ashworth at

On Wednesday a select team of year 5 & 6 footballers took part in the SSP schools’ football event at the Spirit of Sport centre. It was indeed a performance in the spirit of the game as our CTK players each played their part in some impressive displays on the pitch. Impressively, CTK won three out of their five matches, with one draw and one narrow loss. A superb result, in the driving rain and in tough conditions. Special congratulations to Jack (yr 6) and Rafferty (yr5) for their winning goals. Well done to all!

 A team of CTK superstars took part in the recent Burnley Schools’ year 2 fun run, at Towneley Park. Lots of schools lined up to take part in the first event of the school year, and, impressively, CTK were amongst the winners!

One of our year 2 girls took gold in her race to become the first CTK gold medal winner of the event season! Our school also claimed two bronze medals in the boys’ event, and had some impressive performances across the board, many of who made it into the top 6 finishers! A huge well done from all of us at CTK, Mr Broderick commented on how proud the school is of our amazing runners!

PE with Burnley Gymnastics

Wednesday 20th October 2021

The smell of new PE mats was in the air as our Year 6 children welcomed the coaches from Burnley Gymnastics Club for their first session of the new term. The children impressed as they were put through their paces, displaying excellent team work skills as they explored and performed new balances. Using counter tension and balance skills, they worked together to create a sequence which involved travel, matching shapes and co-ordination skills. The children will now look to further progress their skills over the next 5 weeks, with further sessions for KS2 to watch out for over the school year. Great job year 6!
