Wrekin College is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11 to 18 in Telford, Shropshire.
Headmaster Tim Firth describes the school and says: 'Our difference is that, alongside the all-important curricular and co-curricular provision and success, we put an emphasis on employability and have a stand-alone Business School devoted to it where pupils learn what it takes to be employable and practise those skills.'
'Connected to this pursuit of employability, we have the most successful Duke of Edinburgh Award programme for many miles around, with a really remarkable number of our students getting Gold before they leave us. Our ambition for pupils is that they leave Wrekin more ready for the world of work and life than they would do if they were schooled elsewhere.'
