The Bryon Beast Challenge

Fantastic news from the Falkland Islands this morning!


Sean Kirk and his team at Remote RADAR Head (RRH) Byron Heights, Falkland Islands have completed "The Byron Beast Cardio Challenge" to raise funds for KTS Academy. This is a collective distance of 1000km on foot, bike or by rowing. Each individual of their 7-person team, all members of the Armed Forces, covered over 140km.


Here is a message from Sean.
'Greetings from the Falkland Islands,
I just wanted to let you know we beat our target by 79km. In total we covered a distance of just over 1079km. This was of course after losing one of our team members halfway through the month. However, the other six of us that remained picked up the slack. In particular, Cpl Tanica Owens who covered a whopping 294km and Cpl James Todd who surpassed the 250km mark. I covered all my 155km distance by running, as well as Cpl Matthew Dawson who added 142km to the cause.'


A brilliant effort by an outstanding team; we are so grateful for the support and money raised by Sean and his team. The just giving page is still open and can be found below, if anyone would like to donate.


A huge THANK YOU from the pupils and staff at KTS Academy.

World Book Day 2021

Well done everyone!

Selection Box Donation

 

Not too long ago, Dave Kent completed a very challenging 874mile bike ride from  John O'Groats to Land's End to raise money for Forever 12, which is an outstanding achievement. Local companies sponsored Dave's ride, including a company called Marshmallow Graphics. They, along with Dave's business Kent Kleen and Morrisons supermarket have bought every pupil at KTS a selection pack. 

 

We would like to say a special Thank You to Dave, Sean, Marshmallow Graphics, Kent Kleen and Morrisons for their very kind donation to the pupils.

 

 

We have lots of up to date information on external services our families may find useful such as mental health services, day service information and supporting at home.

Duke of Edinburgh Success!

One of our students from KTS+ isn’t letting lock down get in the way of working towards his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. The current situation makes Ben feel nervous and continuing with his DofE “has taken my mind off things and given me something to concentrate on.”  

 

Well done Ben!

Forever 12 

KTS staff were deeply saddened at the loss of Adam Kinnair in September 2018. He was a much loved pupil and member of Green Class. 

 

Adam's family have spent their time since his passing raising money for Butterwick Hospice, where Adam spent much of his time. They raised a staggering £62,353!

 

We are absolutely over the moon and incredibly grateful that Forever 12 have decided to raise money to help upgrade our sensory room.
