Wyke Literature Society is for any student or staff member with a love of or interest in literature who would like to broaden their wider reading. Members take turns delivering sessions on books, writers and literary ideas and movements; topics covered in the past include golden age detective fiction, children’s literature and BookTok, and we were introduced to writers from Colm Toibin to Virginia Woolf!
There is no pressure to present, and some members come simply to listen and learn, but the opportunity to present does give excellent practice for university.
This enrichment takes place over one lunchtime each week.
Enjoyment, friendship, and a greater knowledge and understanding of the wider world of literature.
This is a free enrichment but there may be small costs for associated trips.

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.
