A Level and GCSE Results 2023

Congratulations to all our Year 13 students for their A Level and BTEC results this summer, a lovely morning with lots of happy faces and good news on university and apprenticeship acceptances. Alfie is off to Durham University to study Geography, being one of the 73% of Year 13s going to their first choice university and 84% going to their first or second choice. All Year 13s that applied are going to university, all Year 13s that applied are going to their chosen apprenticeship. The whole of Year 13 have a destination secured for next year and we wish them well with their next steps in life and thank them for everything they contributed to Wye School.

GCSE results day came a week later and again the Kempe Centre was filled with excited voices whilst anxious parents waited outside for the news. Congratulations to all our Year 11 students and we wish you good luck with whichever destination you have chosen as your next step in your educational journey, and thank you for your constribution to Wye School.


Cambridge Students Visit

Queens' College, Cambridge Roadshow- we hosted 4@queenscam students this term as an Outreach Roadshow, they spoke with students about the Cambridge academic experience, the application process and what life is like in Cambridge. We will visit their college in the summer.

Language Exchange Visitors

We have hosted a Spanish and a French exchange this term, we hope our guests enjoyed their time at Wye, we certainly enjoyed hosting them.

Principal's Breakfast

We held a recent Principal's Breakfast to celebrate 10 students who have made a great contribution to the school this year, always being 'The Best in Everyone.'

Former students talk to Years 11/13 about going to university

It was great to welcome Anais and Mark back to Wye School to speak to Year 11, 12 and 13 students about life at university, nearly 3 years after they were part of our first Sixth Form. They are both thriving and loving the experience. Anais is studying law at Leeds University and has arranged a summer work placement before she will graduate and continue her training with a London law firm, and Mark has taken the opportunity from his base at Durham University to study in Canada and Germany. He will take up a paid Masters qualification at the end of his course.

University is not just about work. Both students spoke about the night life, clubs to join, how easy it is to make friends, the accommodation, and perhaps most importantly how their time at university is making them more independent in everything they do. Neither was put off by the student loan, which they called a graduate tax, maybe because they will inevitably earn more than the average non-graduate.

We look forward to welcoming many more alumni from careers, apprenticeships and universities to share their experiences with us.

6th Form Careers Morning

A very successful morning of mock interviews for Year 12 and Year 13. As well as an interview all students listened to a careers talk from one of our volunteers. 


Queen Elizabeth II 1926-2022

We join the nation in mourning the passing of Her Majesty the Queen.

School is open as usual today.

We will follow government guidance on what happens over the next two weeks.


Kenya Expedition

Over the summer a group of Wye school pupils went on a once in a lifetime experience to Kenya.  The aims of the trip were to engage in meaningful project work and leave a positive impact on the local communities.  Whilst there they worked on mud house construction, litter picks, school building maintenance, set animal camera traps, restored footpaths in Nairobi national park, visited the Maasai people, climbed a mountain, went snorkelling and had a one day safari. They had a great time.

Year 13 A Level/BTEC Results

2022 marks our third cohort of Year 13 students and has seen another year of celebration as students secured their chosen university and apprenticeship places. Among those Sixth Formers celebrating today are: 

Ben, going to Cardiff University to study Geography;

Adrian, going to Wolverhampton University to study Automotive Engineering;

Shana, going to Canterbury Christchurch University to study Applied Criminology;

Cristina, going to Chichester University to study Psychology;

Jack, going to the University of Kent to study Ancient History.

Commenting on students’ achievements, Luke Magee, Principal at Wye School, said:  

“We are very proud of all our students celebrating today, as they take up an excellent array of university and training courses. The destinations they have secured are a culmination of seven years’ hard work and commitment, not least through the recent challenges of the pandemic, making these achievements even more commendable. I would like to congratulate each of them, and of course say thank you to our fantastic staff team for the support and guidance they provide daily to our young people.”

Enrichment Week 2022

A fun three days for Enrichment Week 2022, with all students taking part in fun and different activities on site and off site.

Crown House Win Sports Day

We had a great day on the school field for our first Sports Day since the pandemic, a very welcome return to inter-house sports competition. All four houses enthusiastically took part and many individuals did well in their chosen competitions. Crown House won overall.

We were particularly pleased with how sporting students were, they really took part willingly and saw the fun in things. It was a very nice day for everyone, with even the weather playing its part.

Print Workshop

Our year 10 art students had fun attending a screen printing workshop today with Kent based artist and print maker Samuel Capell. Using their own designs they produced some great outcomes on a range of bags and clothing.

Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award Expedition

The Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition was a great success over the weekend, with Year 9 and 10 taking part. It has been really good to see DoE restablished after the pandemic put it on hold for a while.

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Students are taking part in sponsored walks to Wye Crown today, which celebrates a historic Jubilee and is visible from school. Monies raised are going to support aid to Ukraine. Other Jubilee events including music and icecream on the field to finish the day. This compliments our tree planting earlier in the year to mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

End of term fundraising for Ukraine

A great end to the term today with fun activities that raised money to support aid to Ukraine, plenty of sunshine and smiles from staff and students. We hope you all have a great half term.

Silver DoE Expedition

Our Silver Duke of Edinburgh's Award group undertook their first expedition last weekend, and our Bronze group the weekend before. Staff accompanying them reported everyone took part well and fun was had by all. The good weather on both weekends helped.

Queen's Green Canopy

We were grateful to receive free saplings from The Woodland Trust as part of their gift to schools to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022. They gifted us Silver Birch and Wild Cherry saplings, enough to plant a row of them along some of our external fencing, and make our contribution to The Queen's Green Canopy.

Our Nature Club took charge of the planting.

Donations to Ukrainian refugees

A local organisation asked us to help them fill a lorry with medical and babycare goods to be delivered to Poland to help Ukrainian refugees. We appealed to our students and parents for help and were overwhelmed with generous donations. These were collected and boxed by our 6th Formers and driven to the lorry by our school mini-buses. Thank you to everyone who helped with this effort this week, we hope it can make a small contribution to the people so clearly in need at the moment as they leave Ukraine.

Sixth Form Open Evening

A very vibrant open evening for prospective Sixth Formers was held in November at Wye School. Internal and external Year 11s spoke to subject staff and current 6th Formers about how our relatively new Sixth Form has already shown that it has good results, great university outcomes, small tutorial like classes, expert subject teaching and friendly Sixth Formers who work well as a team. Don't worry if you were unable to attend, we are happy to talk to prospective Sixth Formers from inside and outside Wye School all year, please contact us on
