Other Forms of Learning at Wren

Every half term the normal curriculum is suspended for a day to allow a Focus Day to take place.  On Focus Days, students are given the opportunity to extend their learning into subject matters and learning styles they would not normally encounter in the classroom.  Through Focus Days we explore issues of health and personal wellbeing, higher education and careers, religion and philosophy and the Wren specialism.
