Welcome to the Ralph Thoresby School website. We are proud to be a good and improving, truly comprehensive school serving the local community. Our website is designed to provide parents and carers, friends of the school and other interested parties with a wealth of valuable information.
Ralph Thoresby School has developed significantly in recent years. Our priority is that every student in our care achieves the very best they can. To achieve this goal we work hard to ensure that teaching is outstanding and all students are set challenging academic targets. This aspirational approach, summarised in our school motto ‘Ambition and achievement for all’, has led to a significant improvement in terms of whole school student achievement at GCSE and A Level.
We are an inclusive school with a tradition of excellent pastoral care. Student behaviour and attendance are real strengths. Visitors to our school are always impressed by the calm and purposeful atmosphere around our state of the art, modern school building.
Our team of truly committed staff will always go the extra mile to ensure that every child is safe, secure and happy, with the maximum opportunity to achieve. We have a fantastic record of supporting students from all home contexts into higher education, training or employment. In 2014, 100% of Year 13 applicants secured places at University.
