Our Aim

We aim to ensure our students understand they are the architects of their own future, able to aspire to any goal that harnesses their skills academically and socially.

and Charter

Wemms is a small, independent school that provide mavericks with a place to breathe easy, learn to respect who they are and the talents they have been born with. This school is for capable people, who have found it impossible to thrive in a formal mainstream environment.


We respect each other and our wish to feel safe, secure and breathe easy. We need to teach, work and learn in peace.


Everyone here is celebrated for who they are, regardless of ethnicity, sexuality or disability. We have empathy for those facing mental health challenges and will support all members of our community in finding direction and peace of mind.


Making everyone feel included, every day, is important to us. Whether learning or playing, we work together as a team. We know where to go totalk to someone when we need support. We listen when somebody needs to talk.


Mavericks are welcome here. We respect our right to be different and embrace our responsibility to each other. We are determined to attend school and lessons on time and pledge to contribute to every social and academic opportunity. We will work to the best of our abilities, learn from our mistakes and move forward. We know every one of us faces challenges and recognise every one of us has a gift to bring to our community.


Speaking calmly and using appropriate language shows we respect each other. When stressed, we undertake to take a deep breath and count to ten. We know that each dawn represents a fresh start at Wemms. Our past cannot be changed but our futures are ours to design and furnish.
