Wyke Sixth Form College New Build

We are pleased to inform you Wyke Sixth Form College is planning to build additional classrooms, new student social spaces and a large careers hub as part of a £3.6million investment from the Department of Education. This financial award recognises the growing demand for places at Wyke and this means we can continue to meet the needs of students from the local area over the next 3-5 years.

This page is designed to provide information and updates for the Wyke community. A copy of the letter sent to local residents outlining our plans can also be found here.

Thank you for your continued support.

1. Access times – No deliveries will take place between 8:15-9:00am and 3:45-4:15pm

2. Parking – This will be on the surrounding public highways. The contractor will encourage operatives to share transport in order to mitigate the impact on the local area. Operatives undergo an induction where this is highlighted and we express the necessity to park with respect to the local area.

3. Key works taking place – Key works will be demolition and excavation, piling, structural steel and masonary walls. Screening and dust mitigation will be put in place.

4.  Site operating hours – construction works shall only take place between the hours 07.30 to 19.30 hours on Monday to Fridays, 08.00 to 12.30 hours on Saturdays, and no time on Sundays or Bank and National Holidays.
