Summer of Success

By | Awards, English, Media, News, Performing Arts

It’s been an incredibility busy summer for Georgia McGrath. Not only did Georgia collect fantastic A level results (A* English Literature & Language, A* Drama & Theatre Studies, A Law), she also received a £300 prize for winning the Ron Worsdall Young Person’s Award 2017 from the Hull Paragon Rotary Club for her outstanding ability, achievement and aspirations in the Arts. 

 

Georgia, who’s ambition is to work in the media industry, said, “I was thrilled when I found out that I was the winner as this meant I could put the money towards new equipment and editing software which I use to produce my own shorts and small adverts.” 

 

“Initially I was set on going to university to study English and Drama and I knew that I would enjoy this. However, I’ve since made the decision to take a gap year after speaking with the executive producer at the BBC who recommended gaining as much experience in the industry as possible.”

 

As a result, over the last few months Georgia has spent time doing work experience with local theatre companies and major public broadcasters. She also had the privilege of working within the production teams on various UK films. She was recently cast as the female lead in the TV pilot ‘Misunderstood’ and will begin filming for this in Newcastle in October.

 

Georgia concluded that “Winning the Rotary Club Funding has opened many doors which enable me to unleash my creativity and passion for the arts, whilst creating content on poignant societal issues in order to educate and challenge perceptions amongst all generations. And so, it is a real honour to be the winner of this award.”

“Wyke Sports Personality” Dulcie Mudd celebrated her A level results with an interview on local radio station KCFM. Dulcie achieved Bs in Applied Science, PE and Psychology. These excellent grades have secured her a place on Paramedic Science at Hull University, a profession she has always wanted to pursue.

Alongside her studies Dulcie was also a key member of the college’s netball team, regularly competing in cup and league games.

After she opened her results Dulcie had some sound advice for new students. “My advice would be to work really hard from the start but also enjoy it as it flies by. Taking part in sports teams or any extracurricular activity is also something I would also advise.”

All Smiles on Results Day

Congratulations to Peter Mears on gaining outstanding results at Wyke.

Peter, a former Driffield School student, achieved A* Chemistry, A Maths and A Biology and is now preparing for a place at Leeds University to study Dentistry.

“Wyke gave me greater independence and the ability to move onto the next level. The science trip to CERN was one of my highlights and the help I gained from the Wyke Medics Society made sure that I was confident in my UCAS personal statement.”

Once again our BTEC results were outstanding with 62 students achieving 3 triple Distinctions in comparison to 31 students in 2016.
Principal, Jay Trivedy, said:
“In a year in which there has been so much curriculum change, these are another set of excellent results for our College.  They reflect the tremendous work of all of our staff and it is a pleasure to be able to work with such wonderful students.  The care, support and guidance offered at Wyke continues to be outstanding.  I would also like to thank parents for their unstinting dedication.
The staff at Wyke consistently show their expertise in bringing the best out of each and every student.  Sixth Form students are our sole focus and the students at Wyke show what can be achieved when the right teaching, support and facilities are there for them.

As one of the largest A-level providers in the region, I am absolutely delighted with the large number of students achieving the top grades and I know that our College will continue to provide the best possible education for the widest range of young people.  We have consistently shown what can be done in the city.  It is an engine of confidence and achievement for the future.
I am especially pleased that our Oxbridge applicants and our medical applicants have been so successful.  However, I am delighted for all the students and their achievements.  I would like to thank the families and all staff who have been so supportive of our students.”

Mr John Wilson, Chair of the Wyke Sixth Form College Corporation, added:
“Once again our students have achieved a fantastic set of results.  I congratulate them for their hard work and wish them well for the future.  Thanks must go to all the teaching and support staff for their hard work and dedication.”
