Wemms commemorate Armistice Day

Wemms as a whole came together to commemorate Armistice Day on November 11, 2022, with a special emphasis on the women who served in the First World War. Remembrance Day began for most of Wemms students and staff the previous afternoon, when students across the school helped carry their classroom chairs from the main school buildings to the sports hall in preparation for the next day’s grand event. The band and those involved in the presentations and wreath-laying ceremony had been preparing for much longer, but for many, those chair carrying trips were the first sign that tomorrow

Wemms Social Enterprise Week 2021

During the last week in May 2021, Wemms held a whole school Enterprise Week. The aim of the week was to give students the opportunity to develop their problem solving and team working skills. They were given the opportunity to develop their understanding of what ‘enterprise’ is – in the context of understanding different types of jobs, developing new ideas, how money is spent in designing and making products, and primarily, how they can contribute to a range of activities that help them to become more enterprising. The week culminated in a spectacular Enterprise Fayre which was open to all parents, students, staff, and which raised nearly £1600! The funds raised will be donated to the Toilet Twinning charity,
