Lego NXT Half Term Competition

Year 9 this half term have been working on a project to create a moving Robot with Lego NXT, that plays a tune and shows off some moves.

Each robot had to have a theme and some sort of character to carry around the classroom.

6th Form Volleyball

Well done to our 6th form boys volleyball team who beat Tresham College 3-1 tonight. It was a convincing win against opposition that included ex Wrenn pupils. More fixtures coming soon.

Volleyball Success!

Big congratulations to our Boys and Girls u15 Volleyball teams who both came first in the regional u15 competition.

This was the first volleyball competition some of the pupils had played in so it was great to get a Tournament win at their first try especially against some established club sides. This was only round one of the competition with 3 other rounds to come.

It is hoped this will be the start of a great season for both the boys and girls teams with the school games competition coming up next month along with the county schools 6-a-side competition starting soon.

National Poetry Day

On Thursday 4th October we celebrated National Poetry Day by inviting the dynamic and energetic performance poet Dreadlock Alien back to Wrenn.  Every year group in school was given a vibrant poetry performance as well as helpful exam tips for our Key Stage 4 students. Both staff and students are delighted to see the return of Dreadlock Alien and his visits always create a buzz around the whole school.
