Interview Preparation

In preparation for your College interview, we would like you to consider your next steps and the enrichment programme at Wyke. If you are viewing on a mobile or tablet, the tables scroll horizontally to make reading easier.

Next Steps

During your interview, we will discuss what you think your next steps after Wyke may be, so that we can help you make the best decision about which courses to study with us. We will also talk to you about the wide array of enrichment activities available at the college. The tables below are the ones we will refer to during the interview. They outline a wide range of options, but they aren’t limited to what you may consider your post-Wyke route.

Enrichment

Our enrichment opportunities are split into three categories; AcademicWhole College and Clubs and Societies. Some of the options listed below  are placed on your timetable. For example, if you would like to play for one of our sports teams, we would timetable you for training on a Monday and for playing competitive matches on a Wednesday.

If you think there’s an enrichment we should be offering, or you would like to get involved with, then mention it at your interview and we can look to start that activity with your help.

Academic Enrichments

The expertise and passion from subject teachers filters into to our Enrichment Programme, with many teachers offering a range of academic societies, competitions and qualifications to develop knowledge, skills and interest in a particular area, supporting you with your next steps.
