Wrekin College is a coeducational school founded in 1880.
The core purpose of the school is teaching and learning to support each student in reaching their academic potential.
Wrekin is proud of its strong academic record, based on stimulating intellectual curiosity, excellent and inspiring teaching- all of which makes learning exciting. Wrekin’s guiding principle is to help every student achieve the most they are capable of, to prepare them for the competitive world they will enter, and to give them a lasting sense of the pleasure and value of learning that will enrich their future lives.
Classes are small for more personal attention to each and every student. Teachers are experienced, expert and approachable, and give a great deal of time to students both inside and outside the classroom. The tutoring system means that each student has individual academic support. The learning support staff can help those with additional needs, and the enrichment programme stimulates and stretches Wrekin’s more able students.
Wrekin’s curriculum is constantly reviewed and offers students a solid and broad academic foundation. There is a wide range of subjects at the GCSE, AS and A Level on offer at Wrekin. Students are also guided in choosing subjects that suit their interests, abilities and future plans.
Many students go on to top universities to take up competitive subjects such as medicine, architecture and engineering, or go on to vocational degrees such as agriculture, business or performing arts, or straight into the workplace.
