A Level Results 2015

Wren Academy achieved some spectacular successes with our first ever set of A Level results.  Everyone at the school is delighted that our inaugural group of Year 13 students have done so well with 27% of grades being either A* or A.

Amongst many high achievers, Julius Burke-Perrin, Ahmer Khalil, Sam Markovic, Peter Siekkeris, Andreas Christoforou, Romil Depala, Fred Newman, Melika Moghim, Vishal Gaglani and Tahir Hussein all gained a combination of A* and A grades.

We are excited that many of our students will be heading off to the country's most prestigious universities including Oxford, LSE, UCL, Durham, Warwick and SOAS. A high proportion of students are heading off to Russell group universities, and it is thrilling that a number of them have gained places on highly competitive courses such as Medicine, Dentistry, Engineering, Law and History. We are also very pleased that students have gained entry into some prestigious creative arts institutions such as Central Saint Martins and Mountview Academy.

The A Level results and the universities that our students will be attending are above all a tribute to our amazing students and all of their enterprise and commitment over the last seven years.  The results are, however, also a huge endorsement for Wren Academy itself.  The school and its staff have proved that they can deliver the very best results at A Level and demonstrated that the Wren sixth form is an excellent choice for any ambitious young person.

Sixth form registration for students new to Wren begins at 10.30am on Thursday 20 August.  Please come in or call Reception if you are interested in a place.

AS Results 2014

The first ever cohort of Wren Academy AS students received their examination results on 14 August, 2014.  The results showed an excellent performance from the students with some exceptional successes.  Almost 40% of our students achieved A or B grades in their AS examinations.

Key Stage 4 Results 2014

The headlines from Wren Academy's 2014 GCSE results are again impressive with 77% of Year 11 students achieving 5 x A*-C grades including English and maths. Most importantly, students at the Academy have achieved a high 'value added' score of 1043 which puts them in the top 4% of schools nationally. This indicates that many students have exceeded the predictions made of them based on their primary school results. Progress in English and maths for children of all abilities continues to be excellent. 90% of students in English and 83% in maths made expected progress or better. This compares with national progress rates of 70% in English and 65% in maths. Our highest attaining students did particularly well, with a third of all results being graded at A or A*. 11% of all GCSE results were graded A*.

The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is a performance measure (not a qualification). The measure shows where pupils have secured a C grade or above across a core of academic subjects at Key Stage 4 and enables parents and pupils to see how their school is performing. 50% of Wren students achieved the EBacc compared with 24% nationally. 

The EBacc is made up of the following subjects:

  • English
  • mathematics
  • history or geography
  • the sciences
  • a language

In 2014, 77% of students were eligible for the EBacc; of these students 65% achieved the EBacc (50% of the whole cohort).

Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Government provides all schools with additional funding to help close the gaps in academic results and progress over time between those students who are on school meals (or have been during the last six years) and the rest of the students in the school.  At Wren, we share the Government's determination that there should be no gap between the achievement of students receiving Pupil Premium funding and their peers.  We are working hard to ensure that all Wren students are equally able to take advantage of the opportunities the school has to offer.

Pupil Premium funding was first introduced in 2011.  Schools are able to make choices about how they use their allocation of the funding.  This is because the Government believes that schools are best placed to use the funding purposefully depending upon their own local circumstances.

At Wren, our focus on supporting some students through Pupil Premium funding is one important element of our wider vision.  We want all of our students, regardless of their social and academic background, to fulfil their potential at Wren.  This means our students achieving the best they possibly can at school and moving on to courses and careers which match their abilities and which challenge and reward them.

At Wren Academy we take our responsibilities for ensuring the progress of all children very seriously.   It is our intention to allocate Pupil Premium funding to help ensure that all groups of students make outstanding and comparable progress.  The declarations below show how the Academy has spent this additional income, and the most recent gives detail of our forthcoming plans. They include an impact statement which shows the effect that this is having on pupil progress.
