We Create a Nurturing

Environment for Each Child

WEMMS a unique, alternative school

We warmly welcome you to a taste of life at Wemms, a unique, alternative school that offers a safe and nurturing community to those who are stifled by mainstream education.


We work individually with each child to understand their specific needs


We strive to improve the lives of our students through education of academic, behavioural, cognitive, and social skills.


We pride ourselves on having teachers who can think outside the box and engage children in learning, where other settings may not have been successful before.


We aim to inspire all our students by modelling our beliefs and values, through positive reinforcement and recognition of our many strengths and talents.

We provide the main activities

Elements of Learning, Committed to Excellence.

We offer a truly HOLISTIC approach to education.

Our curricula is exclusive and is matched to the needs of each child, enabling students to benefit from the very best bespoke education which is appropriate to their age, ability and aspirations.

We understand the many complex issues around how children learn and the barriers that they can have to learning, and we work together across all departments to give each student the best possible chance of fulfilling their true potential.

Our lessons involve all the main academic subjects in Maths, English, Science, PE, MFL, PSHE and Humanities, but we also teach Creative Arts in the form of music, drama and art and students can benefit from an individual timetable that can include driving lessons, pet therapy, SALT, OT, personal fitness and many other bespoke opportunities centred around the students’ needs
