Ralph Thoresby School Ambition and Achievement for All Back to home

Welcome to Sixth Form

Introduction from Miss Thomas

I am immensly proud to support year 12 and year 13 students at Ralph Thoresby Sixth Form. Our Sixth Form is a place which will allow you to flourish and thrive as a young adult equipping you with the skills and qualities needed for your future destinations. We offer so much more than a study programme, from liasing with top University such as Oxford and Cambridge, to a fantastic social, support and campaigning programme which is ran entirely by our student leadership team known as our RTSU, Ralph Thoresby Student Union. We pride ourselves on having a personalised approach, with incredible support from all staff involved; mentors, teaching staff and other Sixth Form leaders.

Sixth Form is a very exciting and new chapter. You will gain independence and our Sixth Form will help you shape your future. I very much look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful Sixth Form.

Miss J. Thomas – Director of Sixth Form

Partnership with Lawnswood School

Working in partnership allows us to offer an impressive selection of tailored study programmes, meaning that every student can pursue their interests and prepare themselves for the future.

Across both sites, highly specialised and experienced teaching will provide access to a variety of lessons, that are designed to support outstanding progress across the two academic years. Teachers will stretch every student and provide challenge. Our regular feedback helps students overcome their misconceptions and ensures they meet and exceed the high targets we, as a partnership, set our students.

Each student develops an extended professional network across a joint sixth form of more than 300 leaners. A collaborative approach to learning is enhanced by a wide variety of enrichment opportunities including our ‘Get Set for Sixth Form’ visit to London and study trips including New York City, Brussels and Paris. Students will be given the chance to take on leadership roles to shape our Sixth Form Partnership and will be supported in pursuing extracurricular opportunities on either site.

Working in partnership allows us to offer a unique multi-campus experience, providing students the chance to access state of the art facilities across the two sites.

Partnership with UFCA

Our partnership with The Ulitmate Football Coaching Academy (UFCA) allows us to work in partnership with a prestigious football academy offering a scholarship football programme for those who wish to complete A-Levels/Level 3 subjects alongside football. Located at Weetwood sports park, allows the partnership to combine learning and playing daily.

Ultimate Football Coaching Academy was created by professional coaches Steve Hart and Steve Grime, with the mission of developing youth talent across West Yorkshire.

The academy works with players from five to eighteen years old, and are proud to hold an outstanding reputation and track record for producing elite talent – resulting in a number of academy products signing professional deals.
