Student welfare, we take care of your child
Welfare and Safety
The safety of your child and the quality of our programme are paramount. That’s why we have a staff to student ratio of 1:3 on campus and students are never allowed off campus unsupervised.
We also operate a 24 hour emergency number.
- For lessons there are a maximum of 10 students per class.
- For activities including performance workshops we have at least 1 staff member to 12 students.
- For excursions we have at least 1 staff member to 8 students for Juniors and 1 staff member to 12 students for Seniors. There is always at least one manager present on excursions.
Safe location: Wrekin College is situated in its own extensive grounds on the outskirts of a small town in the charming county of Shropshire. All classes and activities with the exception of horse riding, take place on site.

All accommodation is provided on site at Wrekin College. Boys and girls are accommodated separately in their age groups. Accommodation comprises mainly single and twin rooms with one or two quad rooms. A few of the single rooms are en-suite. Accommodation types are subject to availability.
Each boarding house has its own comfortable lounge area for socialising and relaxation. Our managers live on site and our activities staff are accommodated in student boarding houses to ensure supervision.
We provide a variety of British and international dishes. Meals are cooked on site and there is always plenty of choice including vegetarian options. We can also cater for other special dietary requirements. As well as breakfast, lunch and dinner, we provide an evening snack at the end of the activities programme.

Our trained staff will meet your child at the airport and see them safely through passport control on departure. They will always wait if a flight is delayed. We recommend arriving at London Heathrow or Birmingham airports but can arrange transfers from other UK airports/locations on request.
