A Level Results

A morning which started with uncertainty ended with joy for students and staff at Wrenn School.
A Level results day is usually approached with a good balance of nerves and excitement and this year was no different!

The school celebrated success with over 60 A*-A grades and a 100% pass rate for the year 13 students.

Over the last 7 years, these students have demonstrated ambition and determination… today they have been rewarded with excellence. We could not be prouder of our young adults, especially with their personal strength over the last 4 months.

Individual successes were many and across a range of different subject areas:
Nichola Charlton gained A*, A*,A*,Dist*, A; Dawid Koscielniak gained A*, A*, A, B; Rossie Clarke gained A*, A*, A, B; Kierra Starr gained A*, A*, A, B; Katarina Afonso gained A*, Dist*, A, A; Kieran Connolly gained A*, A, A B; Matthew Berkshire gained Dist*, A, A, B and Florence Dubignon gained Dist*, A, A.

Natasha Thomas-Francis, Head of Sixth Form commented ‘We are extremely proud of the successes of our students during a time of unprecedented uncertainty. It is a confirmation of their work ethos that the majority of our students have secured their first choice at university; their dedication and resilience have paid off, and we expect them to flourish in their future pathways. A huge thank you to all staff and parents who have supported our fantastic students over the last two years. Unfortunately, we have not been able to celebrate with our students and their families in the traditional way; however, we extend a virtual pat on the back to all.’

Partial reopening

Further to the Government’s announcement about partial reopening of secondary schools we are able to update parents and carers.

Yesterday (28th May) the Prime Minister confirmed that we are able to invite year 10 and 12 pupils back into school from the 15th June. On any day, only 25% of the year group are permitted to attend (along with keyworker children). On the days when your child is invited to come into school we will arrange a mix of academic and pastoral activities to support their progress, but the main thrust of our teaching will continue to be online as it is for pupils in other years.

Wrenn School remains open for vulnerable children and children and wards of key workers.

We have been working hard for several weeks to make sure that the school premises are safe for children and staff to return. By the 10th June at the latest, I will be in touch with full details of the education plans and the health and safety measures in place for your child.

May we take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have given your sons and daughters to keep on top of their remote learning – it is much appreciated. I hope that you have all enjoyed a proper break from school work during the half term period.
