Wildern became a¬†stand alone¬†academy in 2011.¬† On the 1st July 2018 it became a Multi Academy Trust.
As an outward looking school, our students‚Äô learning is rich in its understanding of cultural diversity within a global context and as a¬†consequence¬†our ethos/culture of respect pervades throughout.
At¬†Wildern¬†we believe in the power of the Arts to promote personal development, self-reliance, creativity and independence of thought, promoting confidence and responsibility.
Our music academy adds a further dimension to the cultural life of our school offering both opportunities inside and outside the classroom.
Our sports ethos focuses on personal health, fitness and well-being, in addition to encouraging sports competition and promoting team spirit.
Wildern is a high-performing school.¬† Our impressive academic success ensures that our students are ready for life beyond Wildern; many going to Russell group universities or/and becoming professionals across a wide spectrum of fields.
Whilst our excellent GCSE results may demonstrate outstanding student learning, at our heart is a focus on every student as an individual and we are proud that we challenge and stimulate each and every student, regardless of ability, in order that they flourish.
Every student matters. We want them to be curious, proud, determined, respectful and reflective learners, so they are well-placed to adapt to life and, eventually, the world of work.
