Bold & Loyal

Wycliffe is the perfect blend of place and culture where boys and girls develop and flourish from The Nursery Class to Year 13. In our diverse community, pupils thrive on our commitment to individuality. We inspire and educate every individual boy or girl – this is not just an acceptance of difference, but an encouragement to be individual.

I believe it to be no small part of the mission of this school to cherish its individuality, its liberty to experiment, and even its eccentricities. Most people and most schools are afraid to be original… Let us be pioneers and experimenters…

W.A. Sibly, Second Headmaster of Wycliffe (1912-1947)
