Executive Principal's Welcome

Many people have contributed to the establishment and development of Wren Academy over the last decade.  Our first cohorts of students have played a particularly significant role in pioneering a new school and building strong foundations for future growth.  Much of our success can be attributed to the excellent start they made at Wren.

We are very proud of all our former students and how they have contributed to the school.  This means that we would love to stay in touch with any alumni, so we can share our news but also hear about what you have all achieved.

If you are a former Wren student, please fill in the form on the Alumni Contact page so we can keep in touch.  We will not share your details with anyone else but will keep you up to date with what is happening at Wren, and other news we can share from fellow alumni.  It would also be appreciated if you could let us know whether you would consider coming in to help the current Wren students.  This could be to attend a Focus Day and tell them about your university, apprenticeship or starting your chosen career.

We look forward to hearing from you and staying in touch.

Gavin Smith
Executive Principal
