Accepting a place at the Wren School

Important and unique opportunity for parents/carers of child(ren) currently considering The Wren School:

Reading Borough Council have advised that you can accept a place at The Wren School AND accept a place at another school for child(ren) starting in September 2015. This means that even before the site of the Wren school is confirmed, you can accept a school place with Wren in complete confidence. Find out more here…

A unique opportunity for extraordinary teachers.

Have you ever thought that Education is far more than just churning out children with qualifications? Do you believe in working in partnership with families and the local community to enable children to exceed their expectations? Do you believe each child’s journey of discovery should include learning life and academic skills in equal measure, preparing children to thrive in our global society? The Wren School does.

The Wren School Public Consultation Process starts now!
