Wrenn School is also celebrating the success of former year 13 student, Ella Beardsley (pictured above), who was awarded a DADa (Dance and Drama award) for a full scholarship place to study musical theatre at the prestigious theatre school, Laine Theatre Arts in Epsom. Ella’s place on the three year course enables her to pursue her dream of starring in London’s West End.

Miss Allen, curriculum leader for performance said: “We’re delighted to achieve a Gold Music Mark in recognition of all the hard work, dedication and creativity our staff and students have made towards our music provision at Wrenn School.”

Talking about her first term at Laine Theatre Arts, Ella said: “Every day is inspiring, exciting and different and consists of dance, singing and acting. Being surrounded by supportive, like-minded friends as well as learning from passionate, inspiring teachers is an honour and I love it!”
