RAISE report a great Christmas present for RTS!



In December, we received our RAISE online report. This is a really important report as it compares our performance with every other secondary school in the country. This year’s RAISE demonstrates just how far we’ve come as a school in recent years. All secondary schools are given a score which measures how much progress students have made since Primary School. The national average score is always 1000 so you can imagine how pleased we all are with a score of 1011, way above the national average! On the basis of last year’s figures, such a positive score should place us firmly in the top 10 schools in Leeds in terms of ‘adding value’ – a fantastic achievement. The report also gives schools a ‘percentile rank’ which tells us where we stand compared to other schools. Over the last two years we have moved from a rank of 95 (out of 100, the 95th percentile) to a rank of 35 – a huge improvement to a position well above the national average.


I always enjoy the final few weeks of the Autumn term as there is so much happening in school. Our Christmas concert was a great success once again. I was particularly impressed by the range of instruments and musical styles on display and there were some truly stunning performances. Our other big Christmas performance, The Talent Show, also lived up to it's excellent reputation, impressing audiences over two nights. Thank you so much to all the students and staff who took part and to everyone who came along to support.


I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Looking forward to another great year for Ralph Thoresby School in 2015.


Thank you for your continued support,


Will Carr
