The Application Process

Moving from primary to secondary is an exciting and significant event. We acknowledge this important milestone and invest a significant amount of time and energy in ensuring that the transition is as smooth and problem free as possible.

We visit all our feeder primary schools on several occasions speaking with students and their class teachers so we know as much as possible about them before they begin with us in September. Specialist staff from Wrenn also meet very early in the process with parents of students with special educational needs, to discuss the provision that will be provided. 

Transport and access

Due to the nature of our regular catchment area we only currently operate one bus service to Earls Barton. However the School sites are served by public transport from many outlying areas of the town and surrounding villages.
Information regarding public transport in and around Northamptonshire can be viewed at Northamptonshire County Council’s website here.

We also encourage students to access the School via foot and bicycle, where we have secure lockable facilities on both sites.

Calendar of transitional events

Our open evenings for prospective year 7 students are on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd October 2019, starting at 5:00pm at the London Road site; current year 5 and 6 pupils are welcome. We will be having talks on these evenings, please visit out homepage to book your place.

We will be hosting a series of tours from Monday 7th October for any parents and students who would like to see both sites of the school and have a look at some lessons. To book a tour of the school or if you would like to discuss your child’s admission to Wrenn School please contact Mrs Vaughan on .


The end of October is the deadline for places at Wrenn School for year 7 the following September. Applications after this date will be classed as late and will be fall under the County Councils allocation procedures. Students to Wrenn are admitted without reference to ability, aptitude or culture. 

Where to apply 

Applications should be made via the admissions system of the Local Authority in which the family lives.
