Student Services 

Based at our front reception, the Student Services team are here to advise, answer your questions and offer any support you may need during your time at Wilberforce College. 

The team can provide information to assist you in many areas of student life, such as transport, our absence procedures, and any bursary support that may be available to you. 

At Wilberforce College we want to help students to be able to study even if they have financial difficulties. We can help you in a number of different ways depending on your circumstances. If you have a low income, have been in care or have a disability, click HERE to download our BURSARY form and see what help is available. 

Student Services are also able to direct you to other support available in the college, such as our counselling service, and to other appropriate external agencies. 

If you need support in any way, please speak with our staff at the main reception. Alternatively, you can contact via email on or call us on 01482 711688. 

Study Support 

Our Study Support team are available to provide additional support with your learning.  If at any point you feel as though you’re struggling with any aspect of your course or if you’d like support to help you achieve top grades, the team are here to help. 

Based in the Study Centre, our team of Study Support Tutors offer individual or small group tuition, as well as in-class support.  

If you think you’d benefit from additional support, you can contact the Study Support Manager, Ruth Hollands on; alternatively, you can speak with your teachers who can help you make arrangements.   

Good Practice Guide for Remote Education

This focuses on approaches to the delivery of the curriculum remotely and what students can expect from remote education, where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts to remain at home during a pandemic.

Curriculum Mentors

To complement the Study Support Tutors who provide additional support to students, we also have a team of Curriculum Support Mentors. These are all students currently studying at the University of Hull. The CSMs attend one day per week from January up to the start of the exam period and provide support to individuals and small groups of students across the curriculum. Not only do the mentors provide invaluable subject-specific support, plus help with organisation, planning and exam revision, but they are excellent role models to students who themselves might be contemplating university study.

Parent / Guardian Privacy Notice

Under data protection law, individuals have a right to be informed about how the College uses any personal data that we hold about them. Please click HERE for our Parents/Guardians privacy notice. We comply with this right by providing ‘privacy notices’ to individuals where we are processing their personal data.

Additional Study Support Due to COVID

The College will receive 16-19 tuition funding from the Education and Skills funding Agency. The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16-19 students in English, Maths and other courses where learning has been disrupted. The College will use the fund to pay for both additional teaching time and the employment of additional learning support staff who will work with small groups of students. Support will be prioritised for those students who have not achieved a grade 5 in English or Maths.
