Wrenn PROUD to achieve top spot for Academic A level Performance (inc EPQ)

Staff and students of Wrenn sixth form are celebrating today! The 16-18 league tables have been updated and Wrenn are the top school in the Wellingborough district for academic and applied progress.

Head of sixth form, Miss Ellis, has commented ‘I am very proud of the recent performance tables released by the government. We pride ourselves on our approach to post-16 education by providing a bespoke and individualised curriculum that allows students to select subjects according to their strengths and enjoyment. Our breadth of curriculum choice, ensures that all our students are successful in gaining opportunities in their chosen careers.

Congratulations to those students and to the staff who worked hard to achieve such great results.’

Our sixth form students are all encouraged to complete an EPQ qualification. The EPQ provides an opportunity for students to extend their abilities beyond the A-level syllabus, stand out and prepare for university or their future career. It is a standalone qualification designed to extend and develop students’ skills in independent research and project management. The EPQ is becoming a key requirement for some top UK universities, such as Southampton University, who make alternative offers to student based on the completion of the EPQ (which is awarded UCAS points).

We have achieved these results after championing an holistic approach to education; providing our students with chances to balance academic success with personal development. Students at Wrenn expand their life skills and enjoy learning both inside and outside of the classroom; trips abroad offer experiences that enrich their lives and provide context to their learning. All students get involved in our extensive local charity work as well as contributing to our own community in school; from mentoring our younger students in their studies to taking on leadership roles and organising events.
