Clearing, Returning Items and Your Destinations

student on results day

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all getting on well out there.  We are all still working at college and we are all here to help you if you haven’t got a clear plan for next year.  Do get in touch with your tutor if you need help.

We are getting towards the end of what would have been the Summer Term. This means that there are a few things that need sorting out before you move on to your next step:

Returning Items
At the end of your Second Year we would usually ask you to ‘clear’ which involves you returning any college property and ‘signing off’. As much as we would love to see you all, we are not able to put a process like this into place for this year. We do, however, need to ask for all college items to be returned so that we can prepare for next year.

Items you may have could include, but not limited to:

  • Textbooks, books or revision guides
  • Technical equipment
  • Laptops or other IT equipment
  • Fieldwork equipment (Geography)
  • Any outstanding Wyke Extra-curricular Team kit
  • Locker keys (you may need to empty your locker or items will be removed over summer)
  • Lift keys
  • Library books or learning support materials

If you have any college property, can you please collate this and then there are two options:

  1. Drop off at the college reception, any time between 9am and 3pm between the 2nd-10th July
    (excluding Wednesday, 8th July)
  2. Drop off at a ‘collection hub’ (Wyke minibus) that is more local to you (times and drop off points are below)

Results Day
We are planning our results days and will write to you shortly about these. Results can be collected from 8am on the day of your results day. You will find out your final results on results day:

13 August 2020 – A Level and Level 3 BTEC Nationals and Level 3 Technical

20 August 2020 – GCSE Level 2 BTEC Firsts/Tech Awards and Level 2 BTEC Technical.

We will not issue results over the telephone (without prior arrangement). If you want someone else to collect your results for you, they will require a letter of authorisation and their own photographic ID in order to do so. If you do not collect them we will only post them to you if you leave a stamped addressed envelope marked “Examination Results”. Please hand the stamped addressed envelope into the main office before the 10th July.  Write on the front of the envelope whether it is for A Level or GCSE results.

More information about these events will be released closer to the time.

Your Destination
Whether it be university, employment or further vocational study, we need (and like) to know where you are intending to go to after the summer. Please can you log on to your Student Portal (Next Steps) and complete your intended destinations.

In order to do this please complete the following three steps on the pathways page tile page of the careers and next steps section of the student portal:

  1. Log into the student portal and find the pathways page.
    studentportal.wyke.ac.uk
  2. Double click the most relevant box to select the route you will be taking after Wyke (boxes will turn green)
  3. Tell us whether you have a live/current application in for anything.

Answer YES = If you have applied for UCAS/Apprenticeship/Job and you have either been successful or you are awaiting a response.
Answer NO = if you have not applied for anything or you have applied and have been unsuccessful. If you have answered no we will be in touch to offer further careers support.

  1. If you have answered yes and you have a live application then please tell us who that application is with e.g. UCAS – Hull University

Do not hesitate to contact vicky.riseham@wyke.ac.uk if you require any further advice and guidance regarding your next steps.

Refunds of the College Campus fee
Your College Campus fee will only be refunded if you have returned all College materials and paid any outstanding fees or fines. If your catering account is in a negative balance, this amount will be taken out of your campus fee refund. Refund payments will be made directly into your bank account by BACS – the finance team will be contacting you separately to collect details about your refunds. Second year students are eligible to receive £15 (half the £30 fee paid at enrolment 2018) subject to all items returned and fees/fines paid.

Locker keys
If you have had a locker whilst at Wyke, you must empty your locker and return the key by the 10th July, even if you are intending to return to Wyke next year.. Make sure you submit your bank account details on your clearing form. All lockers will be emptied and items disposed of during the summer vacation.

We are still hoping that that we can celebrate all of your achievements and time with us with an event when it is safe, we will share details when we are able to make concrete plans.  And, I would love you all to sign up to our alumni community, you will always be a Wyke student and we would love to see you back in college when you are able.  Do sign up here: https://wyke.ac.uk/about-wyke/our-alumni/
