For Sohil, life at Wycliffe has given him a home in one place where he can develop strong friendships and be part of a supportive community. Before joining, Sohil had a Taster Day and Overnight Stay to make sure Wycliffe suited him. It did.
“No matter how different you are, you will be accepted,” he explains. Boarding has provided Sohil with a caring and supportive “family”. “You have your own space which you can make your own just like your bedroom at home. And although Mum isn’t here to do your laundry you can take it to Matron! The staff in the Boarding House are so friendly. If you are unsure of anything you can ask anyone around the House for help.
The buddy system with older pupils really helped me settle in quickly.”
Sohil’s dream is to read Engineering at University to design cars. During his first year in Senior School, Sohil was part of the Wycliffe GCSE team which secured third place in the regional Royal Society for Chemistry Analytical Chemistry competition. “It’s so friendly here and there are so many opportunities. It helps me to be very socially aware and has increased my understanding of people.”
