Best Results ever for Wyke students 

By | Course News, News, News for Parents, On Campus

158 A* Grades 

61% High Grades A*-B 

BTEC/CTEC 81% Distinction/Distinction* 

First time these students have sat exams 

Today sees the best results ever at Wyke Sixth Form College, made all the more remarkable by the fact that these students have never sat formal examinations before.  Wyke students have shown remarkable resilience and determination to deliver work at the highest level despite the challenges of lockdowns, remote working in their first year and uncertainty about how they would be assessed.  Their sustained effort, supported by our exceptional teaching and pastoral teams, have led to the best outcomes and destinations in Wyke’s history.   

With 3 A*s in Sociology, History and English Language former Caistor Grammar student Lydia Clarke has secured her place to study History at Leeds University. Lydia came to Wyke with excellent GCSE grades which enabled her to join our Flyer’s programme, an enrichment group designed to support high achieving students. Whilst being interviewed live on Sky News, Lydia said: “Leeds is the university I really wanted to go to, I really love the course and I’m so happy to be studying History at degree level.” 

Former Baysgrath School student, Kody Tyson, successfully gained his place at Hull York Medical School to study Medicine. Kody opened his results to reveal 3 Bs in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics. He said: “I’ve been inspired by all the medical professionals I’ve seen on my medical journey, and I’ve really been able to reflect on their level of care.” 

Whilst at Wyke, former Trinity Academy student Morgan Mayes was elected President of the Wyke Student Executive. As President, Morgan helped coordinate the College’s White Ribbon Day, a campaign to prevent violence against women. Morgan said: “I sung “Learn on Me” in front of the whole Wyke community as part of the event. It was definitely one of my highlights.” Today, Morgan gained an A in Mathematics, a B in Chemistry and a B in Biology which secured his place to study Biomedical Science at the University of Hull. 

This year, Wyke has also seen a superb 8 students secure places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, including former Kelvin Hall student Alistair McLelland. All eyes were on Alistair as he opened his outstanding results of 3 A*s in German, English Literature and Music. These exceptional grades secured his place to study English and German at The University of Cambridge. Alistair immersed himself into all aspects of college life, including performing in the College’s Orchestra and contributing to the Literature Society. He said: “The Lit Society was just great, and I would encourage anyone with a love of books to add this enrichment to their study programme.” 

Students on vocational courses have also gained fantastic results. Former Beverley High student, Sally Roach, has secured a place at Teesside University to study Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation. She achieved a triple distinction star in her CTEC Extended Diploma in Sport. As part of her study programme, Sally captained the netball first team. Her advice to future students considering studying a vocational course is “to get stuck and take every opportunity that’s available at College”. 

Principal, Paul Britton said: 

“I am so pleased that our students have risen to the challenge of sitting formal examinations for the first time and absolutely smashed it!  These results really are remarkable, our students have achieved at the highest level in Wyke’s history with 158 students achieving the top A* grade. All credit to our fantastic staff and parents who have supported our students to such impressive success.  We can be confident of a bright future with such capable and resilient young people going on to play leading roles in our community.” 

Mr John Wilson, Chair of the Wyke Sixth Form College Corporation, added:  

Once again, our students have achieved a fantastic set of results.  I congratulate them for their hard work and wish them well for the future. Thanks must go to all the teaching and support staff for their hard work and dedication.”

On the Waterline

By | Awards, Community, Course News, Geography, News, News for Parents, On Campus

Congratulations to Shelby Coulson and Declan Whittaker for making it to the final of the “Waterline Competition Challenge 2022”. As finalists, they were invited to pitch their idea at the University of Hull, to a panel of judges from local and regional industry.

The competition was open to individuals and teams from across the region and the brief invited entrants to create innovative solutions to environmental problems. Shelby’s and Declan’s project centred on an environmental app with a social media spin.

The app tracks and records an individual’s environmental credentials and translates this impact into tangible outcomes. The social aspect encourages the user to engage with tips and advice on how to improve their carbon footprint. Feedback from focus groups has enabled Shelby and Declan to refine their product, adding more articles and news stories.

Entries were judged by a panel of representatives from Humber-based businesses and organisations (SSE Thermal, Yorkshire Water, Ørsted, Associated British Ports, Willerby, KCOM and more!) with finalists announced ahead of this year’s Waterline Summit and an overall winner announced at the event.

Shelby and Declan, well done on your presentation and amazing app. You’re in with a great chance of winning.

Watch Shelby’s and Declan’s explain their app to the panel of judges on our YouTube channel https://youtu.be/mYfS9jcSg5I

Year 1 Summer Assessment

By | News for Parents

Between 25th – 29th April, many of our Year1 Cohort have had the opportunity to complete internal ‘Summer’ assessments/examinations in their chosen subject areas. For those YR1 students who sat internal assessments during this period, they have been receiving their Summer assessments marks and have been provided with subsequent subject feedback during lesson. 

 The internal Summer assessment/examination data is now available for parents/carers to view in the Achievement & Reviews tab of Parent Portal. Please note that there are still some external vocational examinations remaining (some Year1 BTEC/CTEC/WJEC courses) and those results will be released later this summer. 

Alongside marked exam grades, the college also uses a Red, Amber or Green (RAG) rating to indicate whether our students are on track to achieving or exceeding, slightly below or significantly below their Minimum Expected Grade (MEG) in each subject area. Many of the vocational courses who have not conducted an internal summer exam series have used this RAG rating for the most recent progress point.  

This concludes our internal YR1 progress points for this academic year and the next progress point will be in September on return. Students will be set summer work over the coming weeks from all subject areas. 

For further information on how to access the Parent Portal, please see the information to the left of this post.
