10 Star at Wrenn Academy
This course has been very successful for the pupils who have been involved. It has evolved many times over the years to reflect changes and demands. It has recently been re-named 10 STAR. The course is varied, challenging and interesting. It covers some of the national Curriculum subjects plus others and has a strong vocational thread. Emphasis is put on the key skills. Expectations are high. The Course is designed for those pupils who are unlikely to achieve in a large number of G.C.S.E. exams, and for those who would benefit from individual attention in a small group.
