Governance

 

Our aspiration is for Governance at Wrenn School to be truly outstanding and a model of best practice.  This means working with academy leaders to continue with improvements in the provision and outcomes for all students, especially the most disadvantaged. The support and challenge required will be through an Academy Council (AC) which was formed in November 2018. This will be the local governance model until further notice.

All of the governors who sit on the AC are appointed by the CET. The AC members are:
