Wycliffe College is a thriving day and boarding school set in a stunning 54-acre campus for over 760 girls and boys, including over 300 boarders across the Prep and Senior Schools. The elegant main house is surrounded by first-class teaching facilities, extensive sports pitches, state-of-the-art boarding accommodation and extensive social areas such as a Costa café available for all pupils at the Senior School.

Academic excellence
Wycliffe has welcomed British expat and international boarding students into its active and happy school community for many years. They are supported so they achieve academic excellence. Sixth Formers progress on to the universities of their choice. At GCSE, there are 22 options on offer. In the Sixth Form over 32 subjects can be chosen from – ranging from the traditional subjects to more specialist fields (including Drama & Theatre Studies, Music Technology and Psychology).

For those wishing to pursue more practically based courses, there are BTEC National Diplomas in Sport or Hospitality. Each is the equivalent ofup to two A-levels and can be studied alongside a traditional A-level. Please look at our website for results. Wycliffe recently became the South/West SAT/ACT Test Centre for US universities entry.

Development Year for international pupils
The Development Year (DY) develops the English language, study skills and subject knowledge for pupils from overseas to the required level to enter the Sixth Form. During the year, they are integrated into all aspects of
school life, yet their lessons are targeted to their needs rather than purely exam-focused.

Sport for all
The College has some of the region's finest sports facilities and leading specialist coaches (partnerships with Gloucestershire County Cricket Club Academy and Pentathlon GB). Wycliffe has a reputation as one of the topschools for squash in the country. There is also a gym, equipped to private health club standards, which is available for use by Sixth Form students in the evenings and at weekends.

Creative and performing arts
For those more at home on the stage than the sports field, there are many opportunities to practise and perform – whether musically, with the choir, orchestra, jazz band or string group, or dramatically as part of the regular school productions or Youth Theatre. Tours take place frequently to impressive locations ranging from Venice to Vienna and Prague to Provence.

Significant bursaries and scholarships
Scholarships are available for those joining at 11+, 13+ and 16+ for academic excellence and in music, sport, or design & technology.

Generous Armed Forces discount
Wycliffe offers a generous discount to support families serving in the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, RAF) so that the maximum school fees payable are 10% of the published rates. Further information is available
upon request.

"My time at Wycliffe was the happiest I have been in education. The school gave me confidence in my own ability and helped me develop not only in my studies but as a person in general."
Sam Dunne, former pupil (OW 2008–10)
