Wrekin College


'Pupils make substantial individual contributions to the school and farther afield, encouraged by the school's strong community spirit and its promotion of social awareness'

ISI Educational Quality Inspection 2017

Our pupils are in no doubt about how lucky they are to receive such a privileged education, nor about the responsibility they have to give something back to the community and the wider world. 

Wrekin has an impressive commitment to charitable activity, ranging from support for local charities, including the Severn Hospice and projects for disadvantaged young people, to a longstanding involvement with an orphanage in Malawi. Sixth Formers and staff make regular trips to Malawi to work at the orphanage - an experience none will ever forget.

Many pupils are involved in our community service projects, such as running a computer club for local elderly residents and swimming and literacy clubs for local primary school children. 

Pupils also nominate charities to receive the collections at Chapel services run by different Houses, and dream up all sorts of events and activities to raise money for these causes – including dress-up days, Valentine deliveries by prefects transformed into Cupids, sponsored sports activities and many others. Our high profile Charities Committee is run largely by pupils.
