New and existing Sixth Form students are being offered Ralph Thoresby’s best ever package of academic support and extra-curricular opportunities. The last year alone saw residential Geography field trips and a week-long study programme at the National Student Drama Festival.


Pleasingly, fifty students spent a week in New York City and over 30 students enjoyed one of many residential summer schools we have promoted at our school.


2016 is already set to be a busy year for these enriching educational visits. This week, we launched two trips to incoming Year 12 (Current Y11) students as well as next year’s Year 13 cohort. Applications are open and welcomed from students who will be studying at our exceptional sixth form.


‘Get set for Sixth Form’ London Trip

Dates: 11th-13th July

Total Cost: £210

Activities: As well as enjoying an exclusive visit to the London School of Economics, students will get to grips with the working of the political system with a specially arranged stop at the UK Houses of Parliament.


It won’t be all hard work though. We will be taking in a show in the glittering West End, getting the best views of London on the London Eye and learning more about our iconic capital with a special ‘Duck Tour’. Students will be able to impress their friends with the billions of facts they will learn at ‘Ripley’s Believe it or Not’.


Students won’t go hungry either. We will be enjoying a delicious picnic in Hyde Park as well as stopping off at Hard Rock Café and the Rainforest Café, providing the perfect opportunity to get to know your new peers.


‘Get set for Sixth Form’ London Trip

Dates: 27th-30th November

Total Cost: £220

Activities: Thanks to significant and generous funding from the European Parliament, our students will enjoy an all-inclusive package of educational and cultural excursions.


Learning about the workings of the European Parliament will be made possible as a result of a special presentation, when our students will be the guests of Richard Corbett MEP at the Parliament Headquarters. Equally important will be our visit to Coca-Cola’s European HQ, where we will learn about the giant’s global marketing strategy. An artisan chocolatier will explain how great business can be done on a comparably smaller scale, making this trip particularly beneficial for those studying A-Level Economics and BTEC Business.


Again, there is plenty of fun to be had too. We will visit ‘Mini Europe’ for pictures alongside some of Europe’s most famous monuments. There will be plenty of shopping time at the Bruges Christmas market, where we will also visit the ice sculpture festival, get great views from the Belfry tower and even go ice skating in the beautiful town square.
