MEDAL - WINNING GYMNASTS TRIUMPH!
12 December 2019
Five children from year 2 took part in the BSSP gymnastics competition at the BEST Centre today, and team CTK were amongst the medals! Eva and Heidi particularly impressed the judges, and took home silver and bronze medals in the inidividual girl's section. The hard work and practice the team had put in prior to the event paid off, as all of our gymnasts impressed with both our floor and vault routines. CTK were confirmed in 4th place overall, a well-earned result! Great Job!
U11 FOOTBALL - FINALS SUCCESS!
05 December 2019
Burnley College played host to the Burnley Schools' U11 football finals last week. Our CTK boys topped their group stage to progress to the later stages of the competition, where they faced tough opposition in the form of Briercliffe, St John's Burnley and Whittlefield school. The team narrowly lost the first two games and came on top in the final fixture to finish third in their group. A super achievement overall and we can count ourselves very unlucky with some of the chances we created! Well done boys!
CTK TAG RUGBY TEAM TRIUMPH!
20 September 2019
The year 5 and 6 CTK tag rugby team took part in a Burnley schools participation event this week at Sir John Thursby school. Team CTK played three thrilling matches, winning two games and drawing a thrid to remain undefeated on the day. The squad had a mixture of playing experience but all performed very well against some very talented teams. We hope the experience has ignited the players' passion for the game and with the Rugby World Cup in Tokyo kicking off this week, there couldn't be a better time to develop a love for the sport! Well done all.

Premier League Primary Stars Tournament
2 November 2018
The u11 CTK boys football team visited Burnley FC’s Barnfield Training Centre last Wednesday, to part in the Burnley School’s Premier League Primary Stars football finals.
The level of competition was high, and the CTK team gave a great account of themselves both on and off the field, whilst displaying their talents throughout three hard-fought games.
In all the ties, CTK created several quality chances to score, and enjoyed a lot of the possession, spreading the play well and showing great resilience to work hard both on and off the ball. CTK were very unlucky on a number of occasions not to have scored after some impressive build up play. Midfield maestro Ollie had a host of chances denied by some excellent keeping, whilst fellow Year 5 pupil Harry saw at least one effort strike the bar.
CTK finished the tournament in 4th place, which is a fantastic achievement in itself, considering the amount of Burnley schools who competed in this year’s event. The determined performances were pleasing to see and the boys did the school very proud!
I would like to thank BFCITC, together with the Premier League, and all the BFC staff, for allowing the boys the chance to play in the same Premier League environment as their Burnley first-team idols.
Our congratulations also go out to Worsthorne Primary, who were the eventual tournament winners.
