Ralph Thoresby School is once again delighted to offer students in Year 8 the opportunity to experience the excitement of visiting the vibrant Germany city of Cologne.


For many students, the opportunity to bring their language speaking to life in the ‘real world’ gives them the confidence to excel in languages upon their return.


The trip, which takes place between 11th-15th June 2018 provides the perfect balance of cultural and fun visits.


Students will learn more about Germany’s impressive chocolate industry at the Lindt factory before putting their sporting skills to good use at the Olympic Museum. We will visit the imposing Cologne Cathedral before shopping and enjoying tasty local delicacies.


Students will also learn about local town life in a visit to Boppard, where they will enjoy impressive views from a river cruise as well as taking part in a city tour aboard the local land train.


There will be plenty of fun to be had at PhantasiaLand, Germany’s most successful theme park and evenings will be full of entertainment with a sports night, a bowling evening, a disco party and a quiz night.


Students will travel by executive coach and ferry before staying in the impressive Koeln-Riehl Youth Hostel in single-sex en suite rooms. Food will be varied and served on a full board basis.


The total cost of the visit is £420.


More information can be found in the letter which can be downloaded (below) and students are asked to return the E1, passport information as well as a deposit of £120 (cash or cheque made payable to ‘Ralph Thoresby School’) by Friday 12th May 2017. All payments should be taken to Mrs. McGill. Please note that reception staff will be unable to accept payments for this visit.
