Welcome to TK Sports!
There have been so many amazing sporting achievements and successes from our pupils. Mr Price, Head of PE, collates a Sports Newsletter once a term featuring the most recent ones. Look out for it at the end of term!
Despite everything being put on hold due to Covid restrictions, we have pleasure in sharing with you the virtual Sports Award ceremony collated for you by our proud Head of PE, Mr Price, who writes:
It is with great pleasure that we are able to release our 2020 Sports Awards Video Presentation. Regrettably we were not able to host our annual Awards at the school as in previous years due to lockdown. We are also minus our summer sports as a consequence of this, but we are so happy to be able to show everyone this video which showcases and celebrates the outstanding efforts and achievements of some of our best athletes.
We have so many things to be proud of this year with sport and it’s an honour to have the opportunity to congratulate the many pupils from TK who have done so well in their respective areas.
We had lots and lots of individual success stories and our team successes kept coming too. Highlights included our Year 7 Basketball team winning the District title, our Year 7 Boys Football team winning the Regional District title (they surely would have gone on to win the Area District title as well!), the Year 7 Girls Netball team reaching the District Semi-Finals, our outstanding Year 11 Boys Football team winning their group in the District and also getting to the last 16 in the country in the National Cup, and our Year 10 Boys Basketball team winning the District title with a thumping victory over Archway. Our Year 10 Girls Netball team also won a number of games in convincing style and they possess arguably the most talented bunch of players we’ve ever had at TK which makes next year so exciting.
Now is not the time to list all our individual success stories from the year but it is the time to announce the winners of the Sports Awards for each sport we have been fortunate enough to complete this year.
The following video can be watched in one go or scrolled through to the various sports on demand. It will also go live on our Instagram account on IGTV.
We are so proud of all our pupils and the very many students who take part and enjoy their sport so much. There are a huge amount of pupils who could have won these awards and we salute each and every one of you for making sport at TK so special. We hope and pray sport can return to some kind of normal next year but in the meantime please stay active, stay healthy and stay the distance until our return. Winners of each Award will be able to receive their trophies when we come back in September.
Mr Price (Head of PE)
CAREERS IN SPORT
At the beginning of February Thomas Keble hosts an excellent Careers in Sport afternoon. This involves a number of local and regional Colleges visiting the school to talk to our Year 11 GCSE PE / BTEC Sport pupils about courses and Careers in sport beyond TK. It proves to be a very useful and insightful afternoon which our pupils both enjoy and gain from.
