Welcome

Welcome

I am extremely proud to be Headteacher at Wymondham College; a truly unique, world class state school for day and boarding students aged 11-18. With ‘outstanding’ judgements from Ofsted for both education and boarding elements of the College and one of the few UK state schools to hold the ‘World Class’ accolade; we are amongst the best performing schools in the country. Our students’ academic success is underpinned by a strong belief in providing opportunities outside of the classroom aimed at opening young minds; we call this ‘Wymondham Life’.

What our Students say

(Read more on the Why I Love Wymondham College page) Wymondham College is a school which offers many opportunities throughout your time as a student. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Wymondham Life activities such as sports, cooking and extra-curricular art-based clubs. These have made my boarding experience much more pleasurable and fun alongside the sociable side of life here. There are also a large number of enriching activities outside of school that we can be involved in, such as an Argentinian exchange programme to help improve our linguistic skills, RE trips to different places of worship to enrich our understanding of different beliefs and religion and excursions to different countries to have a perspective of other cultures. All of these opportunities help to enrich our experience of Wymondham College.  Although these aspects of Wymondham College are very important, the one that is most prominent and that I feel brings the College together as a whole is our community and the way we work well as a team. Most of the students, younger or older, day pupil or boarder, all feel that our sense of community runs across the whole College and makes us feel like a family. For boarders, like myself, this is a very important aspect to maintain across the College as it provides an amount of trust helping students’ mental attitudes to solve issues they may have. I also believe that this sense of unity helps to build a better relationship between students and teachers across the school, which makes work seem more achievable and enhances the boarding and educational experience.

(Read more on the Why I Love Wymondham College page) Wymondham College is a place of opportunities, support and has a great community of which am proud to be a part of. After starting Wymondham College in Year 12, I have been fully emerged in the life of the College and everything that it has to offer me. From Gold DofE to Rugby I have been involved in a variety of extra curricula activities that have gone side to side with my A Level studies. All of the teachers are extremely supportive of me as a student, as seen by the support they gave me through the first few weeks of school, which can be quite daunting! They are always willing to explain if you’re are struggling and will also go into more depth when needed. For me this is all you can ask for in a teacher and is the reason I have been so successful at Wymondham College!

(Read more on the Why I Love Wymondham College page) Coming to Wymondham College was one of the toughest decisions I have ever had to make; but I am glad that I did. On my first day as a Year 7 at the College, I walked into New Hall only knowing the few people that my sister was friends with and the few people that I had met at open days and the boarding preview but I did... I walked in and I felt right at home! I love being at the College, it is my family away from family and I am upset whenever the Year 11’s leave. Being here has made me happy to drive two and a half hours in the car to come to school because I am able to make so many memories and build so many friendships and relationships.

(Read more on the Why I Love Wymondham College page) I love boarding because it helps you build up characteristics such as independence, confidence and it can improve your people skills. One of the main reasons why I love boarding is because it gives you a chance to interact with the older years which you wouldn’t really see in other schools.

(Read more on the Why I Love Wymondham College page) To me, the college offers so many opportunities in the sense of academic, sporting as well as musical experiences, the huge numbers of Wymondham Life activities, trips and the wonderful College environment. This means that literally anything is possible. I also think that due to the boarding aspect of the school we really are all part of a wider community, moreover, I think it offers a unique educational experience making it so much more than a secondary school.

Year 8, Fry Hall
(Read more on the Why I Love Wymondham College page) I love Wymondham College because of my friends, my House and the staff. The staff always look about you when in need and the Matrons make sure you are clean and tidy with your uniform and your dorm. I personally think that the Matrons have the most important job in the school because they help us to be kind, giving and thoughtful. All the Sixth Formers that I see in Fry are always tidy, clean and proud of who they are, that is why I am proud to be in Wymondham College.
