With approximately 420 pupils from Year 9 to Year 13, the Senior School is a perfect size – small enough that all pupils are known and valued, and with superior facilities to give a diverse extra-curricular programme and deliver an academic curriculum of great choice. We engender in our pupils a ‘pioneering spirit’, independence of thought and deed, and a global outlook so that they leave us fully prepared for an ever-changing world.
Education is about more than just a number of academic lessons delivered in the classroom and instead involves a school being concerned about the development of the whole person.
Now, as always, a boy or girl’s time at Wycliffe must be an ‘experience’ in itself – something to be enjoyed and valued for its own intrinsic value and not just a means to an end of walking away with some exam results. Most importantly, our pupils will benefit enormously from being around each other, often without realising it. Our community is diverse, positive, inclusive and forward-looking. The friends that boys and girls make will enrich their educational and social lives not just here and now but will also be amongst their friends for life for the future.
Headmaster of Wycliffe
We help you succeed by having specialist teachers, keeping our class sizes small and providing you with network of support, starting with your Personal Tutor.
With a choice of 29 A Levels, three BTECs in Digital Production, Sport and Business, along with the Extended Project Qualification, our Sixth Form provision is one of best and we have around 180 pupils in our Years 12 and 13.
For international pupils who are 15-17 years old, the Pre-A Level Development Year (DY) is ideal if you wish to study at A Level but may not yet be ready due to your level of English or subject knowledge – and you wish to improve both before entering Year 12.
We wish our pupils to be creative and innovative in their thinking and have an independent approach to their learning, whilst exhibiting the skills and confident to prepare for all future challenges.
Pupils can talk to their Form Tutors, the onsite Medical Staff, the College Chaplain and the Deputy Head Pastoral, or any member of staff – who are always there if they need them.
Our pupils develop independence and ‘a pioneering spirit’ and we encourage them to write their own story so they are ready to embrace their futures.
Amelia was awarded a substantial scholarship from Harvard where she is studying Chemistry and plays for the Harvard Women Varsity Squash Team.
When Noah was considering where to attend Sixth Form there was no doubt – he wanted to remain at Wycliffe.
For Olivia, Wycliffe has made her feel secure enough to challenge herself and to find her pioneering spirit.
For Sohil, current Year 10 pupil who comes from a Forces’s family, life at Wycliffe has given him a home in one place where he can develop strong friendships and be part of a supportive community.
