After yet another year of exceptional success, Wyke welcomes Paul Britton as the College’s new Principal. Paul replaces Jay Trivedy, who after guiding the College through a period of growth and academic achievement, retired from Wyke this August.
Paul was previously Vice-Principal at Nelson and Colne College in Lancashire, responsible for their outstanding advanced curriculum. As an Oxbridge graduate, Paul is passionate about education and the pathways it can open.
“I am extremely excited to be relocating to Yorkshire to help lead Wyke Sixth Form College to continue to offer exceptional sixth form education for the young people of Hull, East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
The College already offers a true ‘sixth form’ experience with high quality specialist teaching, a university style campus and a culture that fosters independence and encourages students to be themselves, which we will endeavour to continue with going forward. This is highly successful at supporting students to great destinations with very high numbers progressing to Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities, including an unprecedented 8 students securing their Oxbridge offer this year.
I hope to help even more students make exceptional progress while studying at Wyke Sixth Form College, along with developing the wider personal qualities that ensures they truly stand out. Jay and the team have done a fantastic job; our next target will be to confirm our place as the highest performing provider of sixth form education in the country. I very much look forward to meeting you all in the autumn.”
