Smith GavinWelcome to the Wren Academy Trust website.  It is designed to be a friendly and informative site which gives visitors detailed information about Wren in an appealing, interesting and exciting way. 

The Wren Academies Trust has come a long way since our first school opened in 2008.  We are a growing cross phase Multi Academy Trust (MAT) which currently consists of two schools:

Wren Academy Finchley: an all through school with over 1400 children aged between four and 18.

Wren Academy Enfield: a secondary free school which opened to a first cohort of Year 7 students in September 2020 and will continue to grow each year until it has over 1200 secondary students and a thriving Sixth Form.

The Trust is proud of its successes; Wren Academy Finchley has achieved excellent Key Stage 2, GCSE and A Level results with a GCSE Progress 8 score which is consistently in the top 2% of schools in the country.  Wren Academy Enfield is already on track to match these achievements and is already highly oversubscribed due to the quality of education and personal development offered.

Having been involved in the setting up of both schools, I am delighted to recommend all our provision to parents and children interested in becoming part of the Wren community.

Whilst our high-quality lessons and enrichments make Wren schools rewarding places to learn or work in, perhaps the most notable aspect of our Trust is the quality of the relationships you will find within it.  Students and pupils like and respect each other and value their opportunities to learn.  They get on exceptionally well with staff, as adults and students work together in a productive and trusting atmosphere.  Children thrive by being given a high degree of responsibility and this leads to exceptional behaviour and a commitment to contribute positively to our local communities and the wider world.  Student leadership is at the heart of our philosophy with curriculum advisers, lesson observers and interviewers working along with a more traditional student and pupil councils.  We believe that Wren students are given unequalled opportunities to learn, to encounter positive life experiences and to excel.  Underpinning all that we do is a clear vision which is based on widely recognised moral and social values and informs all aspects of our work.  We have built communities which provide an education that enables all young people to thrive and make a difference.  Our aim is that they become lifelong learners reaching their academic and social potential through living out our commitment to justice, kindness and humility.
