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.

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.
