Students at Wyke have the opportunity to extend their understanding of many subjects through course visits and residential trips, often spanning across the globe.
New for 2016 are trips to Florence, Italy by the Maths department and an opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, open to all Wyke students.
Media and Film students travel to New York every year taking in the New York Film Academy, Ground Zero and photographing the city’s iconic skyline from the top of the Empire State Building. Alongside a long haul trip to the USA, students may also consider a visit to the Berlin Film Festival, an experience shared with students studying A level German.
Whilst our Geography students have been to both Italy and Iceland in the past few years, Government and Politics students have flown to Washington DC, touring the US Senate and the Supreme Court. In recent years, our language department have taken part in foreign exchange programmes and cultural visits to Belgium, Spain and Germany. There is also the College’s trip to South Africa, where a group of students fly out to South Africa to undertake volunteer work.
All of these visits add a richness and depth to learning a subject by actually experiencing many of the key locations. They all form part of Wyke’s enrichment programme, which also incorporates many other vocational, academic and sporting activities.
As you can imagine, every trip is highly sought after and our students always have a fantastic experience, creating memories and making friends.
