Wren Academy is a Church of England school sponsored by the London Diocesan Board for Schools and Berkhamsted School.  The Academy is founded on Christian principles and is both a community school, meeting the needs of local residents and an Academy which serves the children of the Christian community in the area.

The Admissions Policies of the Academy seek a balance between those who come from a Christian background and those who come from other faith backgrounds or no faith background.  We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and faith traditions.  We do however expect that everyone who comes to Wren Academy, will be fully supportive of the school as a Christian foundation.  This is in line with our aim to be a distinctive school, but also an inclusive school.

The Academy takes part in the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme.  To make an application, you need to complete an online application for your child through the e-admissions website www.eadmissions.org.uk.  All applicants are considered for Community places.  If you also wish to be considered for a Foundation (Christian Church) place, you will need to complete the Wren Academy Supplementary Information Form.
