We offer the full range of sport and co-curricular clubs that you would expect at a secondary school including taking part in local sports fixtures and running a Combined Cadet Force and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
We have a school allotment and work with the local Community Farm. We won the 2020 Green School Award locally for the work of our Nature Club. We offer peripatetic music lessons and have music, art, photography, and drama departments for creative pursuits.
Additionally, our Sixth Form students are encouraged to participate in the wider life of the school. We have a House system, and our sixth form leadership team are instrumental to organising charity events and assemblies to raise awareness and funds for the school's chosen charities.
There are a wealth of opportunities for our sixth formers to volunteer with younger students, including our Guided Reading programme, Peer Mentoring, supporting with our co-curricular clubs and in class.
We offer a ‘life skills’ course for all Sixth Form students. This covers applications to UCAS, careers, how to apply for apprenticeships, how to manage your finances, how to cook for yourself, wellbeing and teamwork amongst other topics.
Students are all given a dedicated mentor at Key Stage 5 who takes them through the careers process and UCAS applications where this is relevant. Our highly individualised approach means that students are well supported when deciding on their future.
All students at Wye are provided with a ‘Unifrog’ account. This is an excellent application for searching relevant careers and making relevant applications. It means that students can readily seek our advice and be provided with suggestions and guidance as to how to move forward with their plans in a very timely manner.
All Sixth Form students receive a one to one independent careers advice and guidance session via CXK to help support them in their next steps.
