Nils Franke, Director of The Wren School Single Academy Trust, attended a reception at Number 10 Downing Street on Tuesday to represent The Wren School. It’s nearly three years since our group of parents got together to open a new school in the central West Reading area. The parent group has grown and changed during this time to reflect the needs of the project, but the team’s commitment has never wavered.
Prime Minister David Cameron was there with Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Education: Both made short speeches to the assembled representatives of the new Free Schools which will open this month as part of the Prime Minister’s commitment to provide 500 Free Schools nationwide in the next five years.
The Prime Minister elaborated on his vision for Free schools to provide more choice of education locally.
The event was a good opportunity to meet with other Free School groups and education providers to share knowledge and ideas.
