For many of our students, Sport is a big part of life at Wyke Sixth Form College, whether this is studying it or taking part in one of our many sporting enrichments. For Bongani, former Sirius Academy student it was the combination of the two which secured his place to study Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University, one of the world’s most prestigious universities for Sport.
“I feel very happy to have got into Loughborough University. I decided that it was the place I wanted to study as the facilities are great and its reputation is amazing.”
“My highlights at Wyke include playing for the football first team as I got some great coaching and improved a lot. I also made a lot of new friends and experienced a lot of different things, more than I would have done staying on at my school sixth form.”
Physical Education A*
Advanced Apprenticeships offer students the chance to access great training, develop skills and gain qualifications with renowned companies. Georgia, former Kelvin Hall School student chose this route for exactly these reasons.
On receiving the exceptional grades which have opened the door to a Degree Level Accounting Apprenticeship at leading firm RSM, Georgia said: “I am really excited to have been offered a great opportunity with a really big company. The qualification is similar to going to university but working, getting experience and earning money at the same time.”
“Wyke is a really good college, as today has proved with these results. My highlight would be getting these grades today as it shows that all of my hard work has paid off!”
Wyke’s specialist A Level teachers, alongside our well established Pre-Medical Programme ensures that our students have the very best chance of progressing onto highly competitive Medical Schools.
This year, one of those very deserving students was Will, who, inspired by his own personal experiences has now accepted an offer to study Medicine at the University of Lincoln.
Upon opening his results, Will said: “I didn’t expect to do this well, but I have and I am just over the moon.”
“My two years at Wyke have been great, the studying has been difficult, but definitely rewarding. It has also been a fantastic college to come to and meet new people. This is all that I could have hoped for.”
“Wyke’s Pre-Medical Programme was also amazing and so helpful as it offered mock interviews and guidance throughout the entry examinations. I really can’t fault it, it has been excellent.”
