Wrekin is 140 years old in 2020, with all the traditions of an English education. But it is also a cosmopolitan, vibrant community.  We have two junior houses and six senior houses, three of which accommodate both our UK and international boarders combined.  Opportunities abound in music, art, sport, drama, debating, Combined Cadet Force and Duke of Edinburgh, as well as many other activities. However, our focus is on academic achievement, producing well-educated and rounded individuals, with a wealth of skills to enable them to confidently enter the world of further education and employment.

Wrekin is:

  • a school which every child believes is ‘their school’, 
and where every child has an equal chance to contribute
  • a school that takes pride in itself, but is never complacent
  • a school where pupils understand that a first-rate 
education is a privilege, and one they have a duty 
to live up to
  • a school which is more than the sum of its parts, 
offering everything other great schools offer and something more – a Wrekin education.
