Why choose The Wren School?

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 …. ”
