Wymondham College

2154.jpg

Wymondham College is the largest State Boarding School in the country, educating around 650 boarders and a similar number of day students. The highest performing state school in the eastern region, the College secured 'outstanding' judgements from Ofsted in both the last education and boarding inspections. Wymondham College is very easily accessed, situated just off the A11 and about an hour from Stansted Airport.

Strong academic success coupled with an almost unrivalled choice of extra-curricular opportunities makes Wymondham College a very popular choice. Over 60 regular weekly clubs and societies are available together with over 700 annual sporting fixtures, an extremely successful Combined Cadet Force and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

High quality education and first class facilities is free for day students and with boarding fees at just over £10,000pa, Wymondham College offers a very attractive alternative to private schooling. In 2015 College students once again achieved excellent results with 81% gaining A-C Grades at A Level and 7 securing places at Oxford and Cambridge last summer. At GCSE over 87% exceeded the Gold standard (A*-C including English and maths).

This year Wymondham College was named as the highest performing state school in the region and in the top 20 of all state schools nationally. But Wymondham College is more than achieving outstanding academic success. The College has been awarded World Class School status, in recognition of the extraordinary opportunities offered to our students and the work they do beyond the classroom.

Additionally, our latest parental survey was extremely positive with over 95% of parents saying they would recommend the College to other parents.
