Building Updates

The Wren School opened with 5 classrooms and an administration block in September 2015. By September 2016, this accommodation will be moved to the opposite side of the site where it will be joined by additional accommodation to meet the expanding needs of our growing school.

Plans for building a permanent school are at an advanced stage. The main school building, which is designed on 3 floors, centres on a central atrium where our students will eat their school meals and meet together for social time as part of our wrap around care offer. 62 classrooms organised into separate faculties in addition to the assembly hall, drama and dance studios, inclusion area (called The Wren’s Nest’) and office space are positioned around this zone. Within the designs, we hope to incorporate features from the legacy of the site and buildings, such as the sunken garden and use of natural materials in addition to keeping much of the existing trees and plants.

In addition, the school will have a large sports hall with fitness studio, an outdoor pitch and a multi-use games area; the outdoor areas will have all weather surfaces and all of the sports facilities will be Sport England compliant.

Update on The Wren School site and temporary accommodation – 17/03/2016

We will be submitting our plans for the new temporary accommodation requirements for September 2016 and September 2017 to Reading Borough Council in the next few weeks.

As part of the process, we would like to invite parents and the local community to visit our school on Wednesday 23rd March 2016 between 3.45pm until 6pm. You will have an opportunity to view these new plans and to speak with members of both the technical and contractor teams who are working with the school on the site development. Both myself and Natasha Lee, our School Business Manager will also be available.

Please feel free to pop in and talk to any of us. We would appreciate it if you could park at Prospect Park.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Mrs Jo Broadhead
