Official Opening by Lord Lieutenant

Wye School was honoured today by a visit from the Viscount De L'Isle, Lord Lieutenant of Kent, and Lady De L'Isle, who officially opened our new Margaret Williams Building. The event, which marks the completion of our building works, started with a tour of the school for the Lord Lieutenant and other guests, including a drama performance, a PE demonstration, an Art exhibition, and meeting Duke of Edinburgh and Combined Cadet Force participants. The Lord Lieutenant then unveiled a plaque marking the occasion and was treated to musical performances by Year 7 and Year 10 students. In their speeches at the event the Lord Lieutenant, Dame Sally Coates representing United Learning, Margaret Williams the Chair of Governors and Luke Magee the Principal, all thanked the parents, students, local community and external people involved with setting up and opening Wye Free School in 2013 for their support and hard work, and everyone who has helped deliver our new buildings and facilities. Wye School’s journey to completion finishes in September when the first Year 13 students will round off the seven years of growth since opening.

Year 11 Prom

Year 11 and their teachers had a lovely evening at Boughton Golf Club for the Class of 2019 Prom. A group of Year 11s took on the task of setting out the room, and did a great job. Some of the cars Year 11s arrived in were amazing, two Rolls Royces, convertibles and an American classic. An evening of dancing and fun marked the end of their compulsorary education.

Prime Minister praises Wye 6th Form artists

Six Year 12s from Wye School today exhibited some of their artwork in the White Drawing Room of 10 Downing Street. The Prime Minister, the Education Secretary and the Schools Minister all took time to talk to each student about their work and the Prime Minister referred to it as 'brilliant' and the Education Secretary as 'wonderful' in their speeches to a reception held in the State Rooms afterwards. 

Mr Magee is extremely proud of how well the Year 12s represented the school and spoke with confidence about their pieces. Dame Sally Coates, the leader of secondary schools in United Learning, watched how our students handled themselves and told Mr Magee 'your students were really impressive.'

After the reception ended the Wye group were given a private tour of the building and met Larry the cat. We also got to sit on a chair worth £250,000, which is not something any of us had done before.
