Wrenn Academy runs a wide and varied extra-curricular programme for all students, varying on a year to year basis depending on student demand.
The aim of the extra-curricular programme is to provide students with experiences outside of their normal curriculum and also to allow them to build upon work they have done in class.
The sessions usually run until 4.00-4.15 on Tuesdays or Thursdays. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that students can make their way safely home after this time. On occasion particular in relation to sports fixtures, students may arrive back into school late. Parents will be informed when this is the case so that suitable arrangements for students to get home can be made.
Weekend and holidays
Some of the extra-curricular programme in particular the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme is also done during weekend or holiday time. Where this is the case parents will be made aware of this commitment.
The school offers subsidised peripatetic service that provides one-to-one tuition on a range of music instruments. These lessons usually take place during school time, and further information can be obtained from the music department.
Wherever possible we aim to provide extra-curricular activities free of charge. Any charge that is made usually relates to the costs of administering the activity or to contribute to transport costs. If this is the case parents will be informed.
