Executive Principal, Wren Academy

I am delighted that Wren Academy is bidding to establish a brand new school in Oakwood. Over recent months I have got to know the area well and I am very encouraged by the amount of support the proposal has already received from local residents.

For us at Wren, starting a new school in Oakwood is a logical next step. We have been privileged to experience the successful development of the current Wren Academy since it opened in 2008 and are keen to offer a Wren education to young people in Enfield. I am very aware that there is already a demand for places at Wren from families in the Oakwood area which we are currently unable to meet.

It is important to recognise that every area, school and child is unique. We will build the new school upon principles we have successfully established at Wren; I know local families will want and expect us to do this. The Oakwood school will not, however, simply be a ‘Wren Academy 2’, it will take some of the best of our current practice to create something which is exciting, dynamic and suited to the particular needs and aspirations of children in Enfield.

If we earn your trust and support and if we are successful in bidding for the new school, I look forward immensely to working with you to make the project a resounding success. You can rest assured that the Governors and staff at Wren Academy recognise the responsibility that is placed upon us when parents choose a Wren education and we will do our utmost to fulfil your expectations of us.
