      "It’s great to be a part of the sixth form : the lessons are engaging and challenging and the teachers do their level best to help us improve. There’s a great community atmosphere in the sixth form and everyone’s opinion is heard and considered, whether it’s in a friendship group, lesson, or in the sixth form as a whole."

    • Emily Y7


      "The lessons at Thirsk School and Sixth Form College are great fun. I especially enjoy PE because the teacher is very kind to us. Moving up from primary to secondary school seemed very scary but everybody, including the upper school stuents, really welcomed me."

    • Daniel Y7


      "I really enjoy coming up to Thirsk School, everyone makes you feel really welcome and they focus on each subject equally in their own creative way. The best thing for me is the wide range of clubs - I am really privileged to come here."
