Sixth Form Commitment

At Wren Academy we are committed to providing all of our Sixth Form students with outstanding provision in the following areas:

A consistently high quality of A Level teaching

Wren Academy teachers are subject specialists working in a school deemed Outstanding by Ofsted and where inspectors described teaching as 'stunning'.  We ensure that all of our A Level teachers are fully up to date with the examination requirements of their subject.  Our broad curriculum ensures we can meet the learning preferences and university aspirations of students.

Helping you to achieve all you are capable of

At Wren Academy all students are supported in being the best thy can be, both in and out of the classroom.  Our A Level students make excellent progress, achieving grades higher than those expected of them when they began their courses.

Everyone a Leader

Wren's leadership development programme for Sixth Formers helps prepare you for your future career and also provides you with vital skills to help manage your life.

A 'pre university' atmosphere

We recognise the importance of using the two years of Sixth Form to help prepare our students for university and their careers beyond. To this end privileges and responsibilities are balanced so that all students become more able to study independently and more confident in their social skills.

A school sixth form

Our Sixth Form gives students plenty of opportunities to demonstrate their independence however we recognise that young people between the ages of 16 and 18 still need support too. Our Sixth Form team will make sure that you take on more responsibility for your own learning gradually as you are ready to do so.  You will never be cast adrift or left to study without structure.

A broad cultural enrichment programme

All students are encouraged to take part in our enrichment programme which includes guest speakers, visits to concerts, galleries and museums and sports. As well as having an interesting and enjoyable time, enrichment helps make you a stronger all round candidate for leading universities. All students are also supported in reading widely around their chosen A level subjects.

The best guidance for university applications

Our record in achieving Russell Group university places for our students is exceptional.  Wren staff are expert in helping you through the UCAS process. The general support we offer is supplemented by specialist guidance for those applying to study Law or Medicine and for students applying to Oxbridge.

Life beyond school

We organise visits to high profile workplaces and the enrichment programme includes a range of inspiring professional speakers representing professions like Banking, Economics and Journalism.

A dynamic community

The Wren Sixth Form is a diverse community of young people with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.  A mix of students who studied at Wren in Year 11 and those who joined us from other schools at the start of Year 12 helps ensure that our Sixth Formers meet new people and make new friendships.
