Notice to all parents
Following an assessment of the playground and outside spaces at The Wren School this afternoon we have taken the difficult but essential decision to delay opening the school tomorrow, Tuesday 12th December until 11am.
Due to the rain and melted snow on site, we have a large amount of surface water on our external walkways and playground spaces and with the likelihood of temperatures plummeting to -6 degrees in Reading overnight and early tomorrow morning, the risk of black ice is very high. To ensure the safety and wellbeing of both students and staff we have decided to delay opening to allow time for the ice to melt.
There will be no PE lessons at Prospect Park on Tuesday 12th December and students can wear appropriate alternative footwear. Also, netball club has been cancelled tomorrow night.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs J Broadhead

An email received from a parent who came to one of our Open Evenings …..
”I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you so much for making our visits to The Wren School such an amazing experience. I was so excited to see everything that you have accomplished over the past few years. I literally had goose-bumps the whole time. Your staff were universally approachable, friendly and brimming with enthusiasm. During the open evening we were shown around by *** from year 9 who was just lovely. He was relaxed, friendly and clearly wanted to share with us his love for the School.
When we came on Monday morning we were shown around by *** and *** in year 8 and they were both fantastic ambassadors. *** explained the thematic learning so beautifully and spoke with knowledge and understanding that I would have found impressive from a student in the sixth form, and in a way that made sense to … and roused his interest. *** explained to us that she favours art, drama and music over maths (which really appealed to … who is similar), and told us about the extra support she receives in Maths. By pure coincidence the maths lessons in year 8 were covering the same topics of highest common factor and lowest common multiple, as the children we saw in year 9 at … school! *** was able to give a lovely explanation of the differences between the two mathematical terms.
I really want to let you know that we have applied to The Wren School as our first choice for …. ”
