What the school says...

Wymondham College has been synonymous with excellence in secondary education since its foundation, with a national and international reputation for the academic, sporting and cultural successes of its students. The College enjoys extensive links with partner schools in China, Spain, France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Argentina, where students and staff benefit from an exciting programme of cultural visits, exchanges and curriculum enrichment.

Boarding is central to the Wymondham College experience. Some 640 of the Colleges 1278 students board on a full or weekly basis.

Special Education Needs

We have a small number of students with Special Educational Needs including dyslexia, dyspraxia and those who have special needs because English is not their first language. We have a very able Learning Support Co-ordinator (SENCO).
