Our new minibus has arrived!

Students and staff were very excited today as we took delivery of the brand new school minibus – it seats 16 students, plus the driver and is wheelchair accessible  – with the Wren logo all over it!

We would like to thank the Friends of Wren who very kindly donated £1,000 towards the bus.  In addition, the Friends of Wren have agreed that takings from the School Lottery can be put towards the running costs of the bus.
