One of the reasons that Markus chose to come to Wycliffe was because he wanted to learn Japanese. He joined in the Development Year (a one-year GCSE course with a focus on English language skills to prepare pupils for the following two-year A Level courses), before progressing to the Sixth Form, and it was in these 12 months that he took his GCSE in Japanese and got a Grade A. Now he is studying A levels in Chemistry, Biology and Maths, and wants to read Dentistry in the UK or Germany.
Stephanie is the first to say that she comes from an unconventional background. Many of her family work at a fairground and she is the first of them to study at Sixth Form level. She came to Wycliffe in Year 12 through the Bursary scheme which is designed to make a Wycliffe education more widely available to talented young people.
Tom loves his football and one of the key things he enjoyed about Wycliffe was the range of activities going on outside the classroom, not just in sports but singing in the School Choir which has over 70 pupils. He said, “You are just encouraged to try something different all the time – so you can find a new interest or get better at what you already do.” He went on, “I think our motto says it all – ‘bold and loyal’. You are encouraged to be yourself at Wycliffe.
