In the student section (below) you will find guides for students (video and PDF) that show you how to install and use Microsoft Teams – our software for the delivery of live lessons. Each student is also entitled to access and download the full suite of Microsoft office products (words, excel etc). For more information, go to this page… https://www.ralphthoresby.co.uk/software-access/

In Teams, classes are listed as a class code, e.g. 11R3Sc =  Year 11, group R3, subject Science. A full list of subject codes can be found in the student section below…

Information for students

Your teacher will give you feedback on your work once you send it.

At the end of each day, someone from school will be in touch to discuss your progress for that day. You’ll be asked what work you’ve completed, whether it has been sent to your teacher and whether you had any issues completing your work.
