About The WREN School
The Wren School opened its doors to 73 students in 2015, with the vision that " Each child, regardless of background, will receive a world-class education and be nurtured, challenged and inspired to aim high". Five years later, we are the secondary school of choice in West Reading, with places hugely over-subscribed, and with modern high-quality facilities.
The Wren is a free school founded by a parent proposer group, formed to serve the families of Central West Reading. Reading has consistently been one of the most popular places to move to in recent years, and with hundreds of houses and apartments being built in the town centre, close to future Crossrail links, the demand for school places is growing all the time. However, the only schools located in the centre of the town are selective, necessitating many children to travel out to the suburbs, or even beyond the borough, to access secondary school education. Although the Wren is located near to other secondaries, we stand out due to our nurturing ethos, our thematic curriculum in KS3 and transition support from KS2, our high level of curriculum resources, especially for the Arts, and our enthusiastic and caring staff.
Having experienced such a challenging and rapid journey of expansion, change, burst in popularity and building work over the initial years as a stand-alone school, we joined Excalibur Academies Trust a year ago, to help us to continue to strive to provide a world-class education to our children, in a collaborative partnership which allows us to draw upon their expertise, whilst still ensuring our unique identity and approach. Our first cohort from 2015 are due to complete their GCSEs this year, whereupon we will embark on the next big project - the sixth form. We are looking for extraordinary teachers to help the school move forward through this and the remaining growth projects, supporting the values that so many parents have been attracted to, and to help us into the new era of becoming an established, happy and safe school for all our students and staff for many years to come.
