A word from our Principal, Colin

Wilberforce College has been a prominent establishment in the Hull community since 1988. We have grown year on year and currently serve around 1,350 students from East Hull, West Hull and the East Riding villages.

We offer all the specialisms of a sixth form college, delivering exclusively to 16-19 years olds, but have a broad curriculum that includes A Level, T Level, BTEC and City & Guilds qualifications. Our Level 3 Advanced qualifications are particularly successful and we continuously see our students progress to some of the best universities and careers.

The College’s support services are outstanding and complement students’ learning to ensure that they have the best chance of success and their experience with us extends beyond the classroom.

We continue to make significant investment in the College’s facilities, staff and students, ensuring that we remain the first choice for students, both now and in future years.

BE PART OF ART HISTORY 🌟

Today marks the 120th birthday of the beautiful Grade II listed building that our Performing & Production Arts students get to call home for a lot of their college week. 

It was originally built as the Hull Art School and since then has always led a life of being a centre to teaching the arts, now being the Northern Academy of Performing Arts (@napa_hull) 🎭

Do you want to be a part of this history? Are you the future of stage, film or TV? If you are passionate about a career in front of an audience or behind the scenes then our @unioftheartslondon Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing & Production Arts course will give you the knowledge and experience you need. 

Unlike any other course in the area, it has the unique approach of being centred around professional practical based learning in all three performance disciplines and production, taught by staff with high-level industry experience from working in the business.

FROM WILBERFORCE TO POLICE FORCE 🚓

Last week we were thrilled to welcome PC Roberts (right) and welcome back Wilberforce Alumni PC Blanchard (left) to the college to discuss harassment and give students information on how to protect themselves, as well as being aware of their actions towards others. 💬

It is important not only this week, but to make it part of our everyday lives to spread awareness of how your actions affect others and ultimately have consequences. 

PC Blanchard undertook a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Public Services at Wilberforce and then progressed onto University to study Criminology. Whilst there, they became a police special, before becoming a full time police officer. ⭐

If this career pathway sounds like something that you'd be interested in, then have a research of some of our 80 different courses via the links under our bio. 🔗

Sammi Iverson

PAST BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS & GEOGRAPHY STUDENT

Sammi, formerly of Withernsea High School, has gone onto achieve great success pursuing her ambition of a career within the scientific industry. After studying Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Geography with Wilberforce, Sammi continued her educational journey at the University of Hull studying for a degree in Biomedical Science – much to the joy of her former Biology teacher Martin who she is still fondly remembered by! Sammi’s positive outlook and cheery demeanour as a Wilberforce student was equal to her hard work and commitment to her studies, so it is no surprise she committed herself to completing her doctorate in Medical Microbiology at Hull York Medical School. Using this impressive track record of excellence in research, she secured an R&D post at Reckitt, quickly transferring to her current role as a medical writer for Reckitt’s Global Affairs Division, seeing her travel the world using her passion for science communication and expertise to advise and educate consumers and fellow researchers in this global medical giant. Sammi has shone brightly since her days at Wilberforce and we are so proud of her achievements which we were delighted to celebrate during our recent Achievement Awards Evening.
