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.

Our specialist Enrichment Programme offers our students the opportunity to visit destinations across the globe which leave them with unforgettable memories.
Former The Market Weighton School student, Sam Winstanley, opened his results live on television and secured a place at the University of Nottingham to study Chemical Engineering. Sam had the opportunity to visit Iceland with his Geography course, he said: “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We had the opportunity to climb a glacier and the views from the top are something I’ll never forget.
“Wyke has so many enrichment options that you can take and so many different courses you can do. They suit your needs, there are no limitations to what you can do and the teaching standard is impeccable.”

Destination: English Literature at Durham University
For many of our students, Results Day is a day full of surprises. Many of our students exceeded their predicated grades and were amazed at how well they’d done.
Former The Market Weighton School student Lucas was one of these students. He secured a place to study English Literature at Durham University and was over the moon.
Lucas also gave some really valuable advice for upcoming Wyke students: “I would say work hard, take advantage of all the opportunities Wyke gives to you and at the end of the day just have fun. The amount of new friends I’ve made here has just been extraordinary.”
