Wrekin College


There is an extensive programme of academic enrichment to encourage greater breadth and depth of learning, well beyond A Level subjects. These include workshops, lectures, debates, quiz nights and academic trips provided either in-house or facilitated by outside professionals. For example, pupils might join a guest speaker for a meal following the evening’s event, to gain academic and careers advice.
