NEW courses at Wyke
Wyke has recently been selected by the government to provide the new T Level in Health qualification, a decision that reflects the national status of our college. T Levels signal a major step forward in the Government’s 10-year ambition to overhaul technical education. These are technical alternatives to A Levels, combining classroom theory, practical training and an industry placement. The new 2-year course, equivalent to 3 A levels, has been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.
T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days). They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.
In addition to this, we have recently added a new Computer Science course and developed our Performing Arts offering with students now being able to choose this as a 1, 2 or 3 BTEC equivalent course option.

Former Malet Lambert student, Kate Buurman had a natural talent to become an architect. She was both highly creative and excellent at mathematics. Kate studied Fine Art alongside her Maths qualifications and Extended Project Qualification.
Kate came to Wyke with outstanding GCSE grades that allowed her a very broad choice of subjects to form her study programme. She was also part of the Wyke Flyers programme, an enrichment designed to guide academically talented students to their chosen career pathway.
There are a limited number of universities that offer architecture and competition for these places in fierce. At Newcastle University, they are accredited Architecture BA Honours degree offers the first step towards qualification as a professional architect, enabling students to develop their own design style and distinctive way of working. This is then followed by a post-degree programme to acquire professional status.

On A Level results day, Elliot was very happy with his results and confirmation of his place at university. When asked how he felt Wyke had supported him, he replied, “Very well. There are lots of teachers and staff helping to get things sorted for applying for veterinary medicine. I did work experience to show that I was interested in the subject. This included working at a vets practice and volunteering at the RSPCA. This meant that I developed animal handling skills and the RSPCA even took me through a basic level qualification in dog handling.”
To support students with Elliot’s career ambition, Wyke offer a Pre-Medical Programme specifically designed to assist high achieving students. The programme is part of the Wyke enrichment offering – activities and interests that are timetabled alongside academic studies.
Like Elliot, students who want to develop their interest in becoming a doctor, dentist or vet, are looking to achieve 7s, 8s and 9s in their GCSE grades and complete their A level study at Wyke, again targeting As and A*s.
