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.

Host Families required for Study Programme

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

For the last seven years, a select number of sixth form colleges across the country have been welcoming a small group of Swiss students on a one-year study programme. The programme has been heralded as a great success for the colleges involved as well as the local communities.

From this September, Wyke College is excited to start welcoming a small group of Swiss students as part of this programme. We believe the experience will be of real benefit our local students.

For the programme to be a success, caring host families in Hull, the East Riding and North Lincolnshire with access to Wyke Sixth Form College are needed. Students will be carefully chosen for and matched with the host families involved, who will inevitably enjoy being part of a supportive community network. All of this is managed by Ric Carby of Barnes Host Families.

A Principal from one of the colleges involved said; “Our Swiss guests bring so many different experiences and views with them, which is quite eye-opening for our own students and very beneficial. I think that the Swiss students also gain a great deal from their time here experiencing the local culture. Getting involved in the Swiss programme has been one of our best ventures in recent years and I hope it continues for many years to come.”

Moreover, local families really enjoy the experience of hosting the students as well as benefitting from the extra income. “Luna has enriched our family life and is a pleasure to have around. She has become a true friend and we enjoy sharing activities through fresh eyes.” says host Susan Holloway.

If you have a spare room and are interested in hosting a Swiss student from September for an academic year, please contact Ric on 07748 113782 or email ric@host-families.co.uk

Protocol to ensure that learners having to isolate due to the Pandemic are not unduly disadvantaged

By | News for Parents

Due to the continued impact the pandemic is still having within education and particularly for some students during this January Vocational exam series, we have made the decision in correspondence with both OCR and Edexcel exam boards, that any Year 2 student who have not been able to sit their exam at this time as planned due to Covid self-isolation, whether or not they had a positive test result, will have an application for special consideration entered with the relevant exam board.

Please read the full protocol here: January Vocational Exams Protocol
