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.”

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.

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.

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 office@wyeschool.org.uk
