Headteacher’s Welcome

The Wren is a local school for the local community. Every student is known and valued as an individual and inspired to aim high in all that they do. Our vision is to nurture, challenge and inspire each of them to achieve excellence as a result of our personalised approach to learning and progress.

In common with the aims of Excalibur, the multi-academy trust that we formally join on 1st February 2019, we want to prepare our students for the future both academically and socially through our Wren Skills where students develop their leadership and interpersonal qualities to prepare them to play a full part in the changing global economy. Our curriculum is broad and balanced to ensure that each child benefits from a strong core curriculum supplemented by a wide range of key stage 4 and, from September 2020, key stage 5 option choices.

In reflection of our diverse and very supportive local community, The Wren School promotes the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and understanding of those with different faiths and beliefs. We are indeed an inclusive school! Our students develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in, and contribute positively to, life in modern Britain. This was confirmed by Ofsted in July 2018 in their first report here.  Within the report, which is a genuine reflection of our school, my favourite quote is that we have “established an ethos that enables pupils to succeed … Staff and governors share a determination to achieve this vision”.

I am very proud of our students and invite you to come and see for yourself how successful and confident they are in school life.

Jo Broadhead
