Wyke Proud is an organisation run by LGBT+ people for LGBT+ people and allies. We meet once every other week to discuss LGBT issues and for fun an informative sessions. We also work towards supporting the Student Executive collaboratively with our annual Wyke Pride event, held in June each year.
The society is a safe space for people to be themselves, free from the worries of discrimination or intolerance, and a chance to meet new friends that share similar interests.
The society is run by students with staff support, offering real leadership and organisation opportunities and development, which looks good on any application for higher education, jobs or apprenticeships.
This enrichment takes place every other Friday lunchtime.
You can meet LGBT+ people, and there are opportunities for leadership roles. You can also develop other life skills as you will have a hand in organising LGBT+ themed events around the college including Wyke Pride.
There is no cost associated just come along. Friends and allies also welcome.

My experience at Wyke has been an overwhelming success. I thought that moving from a small school to a larger college would be a daunting experience yet it wasn’t at all. Everyone is so friendly and approachable. Flyers has provided me with so many useful skills and experiences which I will never forget.
The independence and opportunity to meet new people was why I chose to study my A Levels at the College. I enjoyed being able to complete an EPQ as it allowed me to research and write about a topic I found interesting.
I knew Wyke was the College I wanted to study at because I felt it had a much more mature and relaxed environment than other colleges. I knew I wanted to study Human, Social and Political Sciences at university and my teachers and Flyers mentor offered me additional support sessions to further develop my knowledge in these areas.
I was attracted to studying at Wyke because it offered me with many opportunities that would allow me to progress into Higher Education. Being a Flyer I have gained invaluable skills, experiences and support with my personal statement for university.
