Landowner LTC (Licensed Trade Charity) has agreed to allow The Wren School to move temporary accommodation on to the former Elvian School site.
Reading’s first free secondary school will open in September.
The main school building, which has been designed over 4 floors, focuses on the central atrium where students eat their meals, gather socially and for group study as part of the wrap around care. The scheme encompasses 62 classrooms, an assembly hall, drama and dance studios, office space and an inclusion suite aptly named ‘The Wren’s Nest’.
Together with Kier, ECE developed a scheme for The West Reading Education Network (WREN) School on the former Elvian School site at Bath Road in Reading.

The West Reading Education Network opened The Wren School, a secondary free school, in Reading for its first intake of 80 year seven pupils on a former school site in Southcote Lane on Monday 7 th September. Once the school reaches full capacity, it will be responsible for 1176 students.
The Wren School principal, Jo Broadhead, said: “I am thrilled and delighted that the hard work and perseverance of everyone who has been determined to see the opening of The Wren School has been recognised by our nomination for a Pride of Reading Award. It’s almost impossible to put into words how excited The Wren team is to be opening at last on the site of the former Elvian School.”
