The Wren is a fantastic school, and one that I am proud to lead.
At The Wren we challenge ourselves to become better day by day; we strive to push our school community forward so that we can offer our students an exceptional education. We share an ambitious and inspirational vision which motivates us to be the best that we can be.
‘Each child, regardless of background will receive a world-class education and be nurtured, challenged and inspired to aim high.’
Every young person deserves access to an outstanding education. One that challenges, inspires and grows them as individuals. One that nurtures a love of learning and empowers students to achieve their best. One that ensures all students have the tools to be fully equipped for their future lives. Academic achievement is, of course, essential but is only part of the process. At The Wren we aim to create independent, creative and confident individuals who are skilled and ready for the world, and resilient to the challenges they face.
Our rich and purposeful curriculum offers a wide mix of academic and practical opportunities which challenge and inspire our students to explore, discover and learn new things. We have an unremitting focus on quality first teaching and learning, with an exceptional staff team who are committed to creating our ‘Wren Inspirational Classrooms’. We expect and encourage the highest standards of attitude, behaviour and commitment from staff and students alike.
As a school we value community cohesion and work closely in partnership with the Excalibur Academies Trust and its excellent network of schools. We encourage you, as parents, students and the local community, to fully invest in life at The Wren. Every one of us must be involved in the academic and personal growth of every student and this relies on the investment and commitment of all of us within this community.
I encourage you to visit us, speak with us and explore how you can help us realise our vision.
We are not a school that will sit still. We are restless, and will be bold in moving this school and the educational experience of our students forward.
This is The Wren.
