Principal, Jay Trivedy, said:

“These are another outstanding set of results and reflect the tremendous work that is done at our College by all the staff and students.  The age range of 16 – 19 is, in my opinion, the most exciting period when young people are fully exploring their own lasting potential.  It is a pleasure to be able to work with them and a privilege to be able to lead such a wonderful College.

The staff at Wyke show year on year their expertise in bringing the best out of each and every student.  Post-16 students are our sole focus and the students at Wyke show what can be achieved when the right teaching, support and facilities are there for them.

I am absolutely delighted particularly with the large number of students achieving the top grades and I know that our College will continue to provide the best possible education for the widest range of young people.  We have consistently shown what can be done in the city.  It is an engine of confidence and achievement for the future.

I am especially pleased that all three of our Oxbridge applicants and all of our medical applicants have been successful.  However, I am delighted for all of the students and their achievements.  I would like to thank the families and staff (teaching and non-teaching) who have been so supportive of our students.”

Mr John Wilson, Chair of the Wyke Sixth Form College Corporation, added:

“Once again our students have achieved a fantastic set of results.  I congratulate them for their hard work and wish them well for the future.  Thanks must go to all the College staff for their hard work and dedication.”
