Yet again, students at Wyke Sixth Form College have shown a combination of talent and hard work to achieve outstanding success. This, combined with superb teaching and the best possible facilities, has meant that 99.6% of students have achieved a pass grade at A-level with 29 subjects achieving 100% pass rate.
At A-level, we have had an increase in the proportion of students achieving the much coveted A* grade (97 students), and the proportion achieving A*- B grades has increased to 47%.
No less than 50 students achieved at least 3 grades at A* or A and particular congratulations go to:

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.”
A visually stunning retrospective exhibition reflecting Hull’s fight against racism is being held at Wyke in March. The original silkscreen posters, designed by Richard Lees, for Hull Rock Against Racism 1979-82, are being hung on the Learning Street corridor of the Oak building.
“This Is Hull!” presents a body of work in the revolutionary tradition of German Expressionism, Soviet Constructivism and Paris 68 Atelier Populaire. Alongside the screen prints will be a student response entitled “Fifty Protest Songs”, a series of framed images produced by the Wyke A level Graphic Design course.
Hull Rock Against Racism got started in 1979 when community activists, grassroots anti-racist campaigners and musicians came together to promote regular RAR gigs with local bands in the heart of West Hull.
With production runs of around 250 , Richard Lees’ silkscreen posters were fly-posted all over Hull, often in blocks of 4 -8 posters per site, creating a powerful and sustained anti-racist street art presence in the city, just as important as the events they promoted.
The bands and the community centre have gone but the posters are reaching out to new audiences: with six on permanent display at Hull’s Wilberforce House Museum, the whole lot are on a UK tour, to Manchester’s People’s History Museum, London’s Rich Mix, Edinburgh’s Summerhall and now at Wyke Sixth Form College.
