Number 10 Downing Street firmly behind Nils Franke of The Wren School team!

Nils Franke, Director of The Wren School Single Academy Trust, attended a reception at Number 10 Downing Street on Tuesday to represent The Wren School. It’s nearly three years since our group of parents got together to open a new school in the central West Reading area. The parent group has grown and changed during this time to reflect the needs of the project, but the team’s commitment has never wavered.

Clerk to Governors

The Role

As a new governing body, we will be growing in size and structure alongside the school over the coming years. You would be making this journey with us and so would need to be suitably adaptable to change. Currently we have formed two committees in addition to the Full Governing Body: each planned to meet five times a year.

Alok Sharma joins The Wren School for Picnic in the Park.

Last Sunday afternoon saw the culmination of a week of induction activities for prospective students and parents/carers at The Wren School with Picnic in the Park (at Prospect Park). More than half of the families whose children are signed up to join The Wren School when it opens this September attended despite the overcast weather. Adults and young people alike joined in enthusiastically with the croquet, rounders and football games.

'Picnic in the Park' - Sunday 12th July

This weekend The Friends of The Wren are holding their first inaugural event ‘Picnic in the Park’. The Friends of The Wren is a small but growing group of mainly parents but also volunteers who want to be actively involved in making this school a great success. The event is being held in Prospect Park from 1.30pm onwards where parents/carers and their child(ren) are welcome to bring their own picnic. There will be an opportunity for everyone to socialise with some members of staff and the wider Wren team and to get to know each other better.

It’s busy, busy, busy at Wren HQ as the team prepare for the first day of school on 7 September 2015.
Head teacher Jo Broadhead said “We’re entering the most exciting - and busy - phase so far, as we prepare to open in just over 3 months. We’re particularly thrilled that during July, we’ll see the first ‘solid’ evidence of our school when our temporary buildings arrive on site.”

Sun shines on The Wren School Open Day as parents and pupils are wowed by proposals for school!

The first Wren School Open Day on Saturday 16th May was a great success, allowing parents/carers and students to visit the home of The Wren School when it opens in September for Year 7 pupils. As well as seeing the site, they met with the Headteacher and teachers and had the opportunity to ask questions and get a real taste of how the school will look and feel.
