Welcome back everyone and I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and refreshed for our final term of the school year.
Our Sixth formers and Year 11 students are in their final stages of revision, preparing for one of the most important set of exams in their lives. Our A-Level students will have had offers from universities enticing them to study for a future career in which they will strive to both prosper and be extremely satisfied with. Our AS students will also be working hard and aiming for the best grades, to enable them to continue with their final year at Wrenn. At the end of the summer it will be their turn to apply for university places in readiness for their final journey in education. So my message to them is “to achieve your dreams you need to make sacrifices, make sure you leave no stone unturned and prepare fully for your exams”.
Many of our Year 11’s are now working extremely diligently and these next four weeks are crucial if they are to achieve the governments standard of 5 A*-C with English and Maths.
The Year 11 residential will give fifty of our students a wonderful opportunity to improve their knowledge and understanding in the core subjects with the aim of boosting their grades beyond that magical C level.
Staff continue to be fully supportive in helping our students with their revision. The commitment of the staff who offered their time and expertise over the Easter holidays was admirable and unrivalled in many schools. I would like to give a warm thank you to all the staff who selflessly gave up their time.
For all our Year 11’s, my message to them is simple “have no regrets”. If you have given your best and prepared fully for your exams you will reap the rewards.
Our Year 7 and Year 9 students will now be supported and nurtured by our new temporary Head of Year’s Miss Vessey and Mrs Hales respectively. These two experienced and caring members of staff will continue to monitor and support the education of your children over the next 13 weeks. Please get in touch if you have any concerns with your child’s progress and they will be delighted to support you in any way.
Our Year 8’s and Year 10’s are also at very important stages in their lives at Wrenn. Many Year 8 students have an opportunity to graduate into our upper school programme and some will continue to excel and graduate with honours. Our Year 10’s have one full academic year left before they sit their GCSE’s. It is vitally important that they don’t take their foot off the pedal and continue to engage in their learning to the best of their ability. Try to get ahead of your studies now to avoid the pressure of catching up next year.
I really feel part of the school community and Proud to be Wrenn. All our students and staff involved in the school never fail to surprise me in many ways. It is a pleasure to be able to have an opportunity to raise standards and promote excellence in everything we do. All our students have a chance to do the best they can and starting to “believe they truly can achieve”, through our Wrenn Standard which emanates throughout school.
- Work hard
- Respect others
- Enjoy learning
- Never give up
- Nothing is impossible
The climate is changing in many ways and I am looking forward to the summer term and the successes that they will bring.
