April 2024 Updates

April 2024 Updates

Tuesday, 30 April, 2024

We have had an amazing start to the Summer Term, students returned to school and have been engaging in lessons and activities with boundless energy, spring is definitely in the air.  It is always a pleasure to share what we have been doing at school and let you know what is happening. 

Buildings and Grounds 

We have changed the layout in our reception area, it looks cleaner and fresher with a larger reception desk, which has also been fitted with a remote entry camera to facilitate entry through the gates and front door.   

The grounds continue to maintain that cared for and manicured look, Patrick has been weeding, trimming hedges and removing dead shrubs.  The tidied-up flower beds and borders look neater and the flowers that are beginning to appear are adding splashes of colour brightening up the gardens.   


19th April – Some of the Middle School students went to Hinchley Wood for an Introduction to Judo 

20th April – Our Pi Wars team went to Cambridge 

Cambridge University became the battleground for robotics enthusiasts during Pi Wars 2024, but amidst the chaos, the students of Wemms thrived.  Isla, Conrad, Amelie, and Josh, armed with their robot Leviathan MK II, emerged as stars of the show.  Against fierce competition from 27 other teams, the Wemms crew secured a remarkable 4th place overall, showcasing their ingenuity and teamwork.  With their bellies full of pizza and their minds buzzing with inspiration, the students of Wemms returned home from Pi Wars 2024 with smiles on their faces, grateful for the adventure and camaraderie they experienced along the way. 

23rd April – Regional Table Cricket at K2 Crawley 

27th & 28th April – DofE Expedition
