Yup it's another colour thread! I've put this kitten on our Cats Protection website, she's down as being multi-coloured but I figured there must be a proper name for her colouring!

Torbie or Tortie-Tabby - a tortoiseshell cat that has tabby markings only in the red color. Still would have black color.
Sometimes people confuse the Torbie and the Patched Tabby. Think of it as basically either a tortoiseshell cat or a tabby cat with the red tabby markings.
Hope this helps.
Like me you are in the UK, there are no such colour names as 'Patched Tabby' and 'Calico' here - they are American Terms, so it's no surprise that you haven't heard them before.
In UK English, you would call her a tortoishell tabby and white
