Wrens Virtual Tour



We aim to provide an excellent educational establishment for all the local children that wish to attend this school, however:


There is no guarantee of a place for children living in
the priority admission area.
In the event of over subscription places will be
allocated using the following criteria in the order given:

1. Looked After Children and previously looked after
children (as defined in the Primary Education in
Essex 2020/2021 booklet);
2. children with a sibling attending the school;
3. children living in the priority admission area;
4. remaining applications.

In the event of over subscription within any of the
above criteria, priority will be determined by straight
line distance from home to school, those living
closest being given the highest priority.


To find out if you are in the school’s catchment use the Catchment area checker:
