Why Wyke?

Considering studying at Wyke Sixth Form College next year?

Our first year students share their experiences of Wyke Sixth Form College so far and offer some valuable advice for Year 11 students deciding on their next steps:

Hope Newman, former student at Goole Academy is studying a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care and aspires to become an RAF Nurse or Medic.

“There is a really nice atmosphere at Wyke and a great culture amongst staff and students.”

“I chose Wyke for a number of reasons including the wide range of opportunities and fantastic pass rates.”

“My experience of Wyke has been nothing but positive. My course is really interesting and there is a good mix of group and independent learning. I am also looking forward to going on some of the cross college trips as they all look amazing.”

When asked to give advice to students who are considering coming to Wyke, Hope said: come to open days, speak to as many staff and students as you can and attend Wyke Start.”

Bryan Yalung, former student at the Vale Academy is currently studying Biology, Chemistry and History and aspires to pursue a career in Dentistry.

“I chose to study at Wyke due to the outstanding academic success of the College and the great reviews that I received from friends who had previously studied here.”

“I was also impressed with the range of societies available at the College including the Medics Society which supports students wishing to study Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science.”

Bryan’s advice to new students considering coming to Wyke is; “go to Wyke Start, it is a great way to experience the subjects you are interested in. It really helped me to decide which courses I actually wanted to study. I would also advise students to select courses that they enjoy as you are more likely to succeed in them.”

Ellissia Richardson, former student at South Holderness Technology College is currently studying Economics, Government and Politics, History and Core Mathematics at Wyke. 

“Wyke stood out to me as it has a wide range of different and interesting courses. I also wanted to meet new people in a new environment.”

“Wyke differs to my previous school as it has far more opportunities available such as the clubs, societies, trips and enrichment offering. Also, the staff and teachers treat you like an adult which is also really important to me.”

Ellissia’s advice to new students considering studying at Wyke is; “come along to all the open evenings and Wyke Start to get as much information as possible so that you can make the right choices.”

Wyke is the perfect place to gain your independence, meet new people, enjoy new experiences and achieve academic success. Once at Wyke, you will be joining students from over forty-three schools, spanning across Hull, East Riding and North Lincolnshire.

Come and see for yourself at our first open evening on Thursday 25th October, 5.30pm – 8.00pm.

There is no need to book, just come along on the day. You can attend on your own or bring your family and friends.
