The PSAT, SAT and ACT testing systems are rarely permitted outside the USA and very few places in the UK are authorised to run them. With increasing numbers wishing to apply for US universities, the school decided in 2013 it was time to put Wycliffe among the elite.

Mrs Laurence Goodwin is US Applications Co-ordinator at Wycliffe.

Laurence who is an American national, has a breadth of experience in US university admissions and among her previous positions has worked as the Director of Studies and University Admission Advisor in Oxfordshire.

Laurence also runs preparation classes for US university applicants along with the Head of Sixth Form, Matt Archer.

The school has already attracted interest with pupils enrolling with the explicit aim of following the SAT preparation course and has seen pupils gain places at a variety of top American universities, including Ivy League.

Wycliffe is also the host centre for the tests for all of Wales and the south-west of England.

Wycliffe now offers American Studies with accreditation from a US high school to enhance the SAT programme in support of those applying for US universities.
