Hello The Market Weighton School

This an exclusive webpage that we have designed to help guide and support students from The Market Weighton School in applying to Wyke Sixth Form College.

We’ve gathered together a number of video resources to further your understanding about Wyke, to communicate what makes it such a special place to study. Our “Review of 2019-20” introduces you to the range of subjects, student success and fantastic enrichment opportunities. Further down the page there’s a guide on how to apply to help you secure your place.

For students targeting 6s and above in their GCSEs, we have an insight to our Oxbridge and Pre-Medical Programmes. This is followed by some case studies of former The Market Weighton School students, why they chose Wyke, the subjects they studied and their plans for the future.

We are looking to invite students and applicants to the College campus in 2021, but in the meantime will be hosting a number of live online and virtual events to give you a further opportunity to explore the opportunities at Wyke.

NEW for 2021 T-Levels

t-levels

Wyke has been selected by the government to provide the new T Level qualification from September 2021, 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.

At Wyke students a select number of students will be able to take a T Level in the following subject areas:
• Digital Production, Design and Development
• Health

These new 2-year courses, equivalent to 3 A levels, have 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.

Case Studies of former The Market Weighton School students

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.”

Virtual Open Events

As you will understand, we are unable to host open events at the campus. Instead, we are launching an exciting virtual open event programme to allow you to explore the campus, meet our Principal and interact with subject teachers and current students. These events will be accessible through your PC, tablet or mobile.
