Parents speak for us

After many years struggling in mainstream schools Wemms has been a breath of fresh air. The teachers and management clearly understand our daughter’s unique set of skills and this is allowing her to fulfil her potential in a safe and caring environment. The transformation of our daughter into a happy and confident teenager has been amazing to see.

It would be impossible to overstate the positive impact joining the Wemms family has made to my son and our whole family. Having been through various schools, most of whom completely misunderstood his needs and frankly treated him really badly, he was traumatised, depressed and totally unable to engage and with poor attendance.
From his first trial day he felt he belonged and since joining his attendance and engagement in lessons is nearly 100%, he wants to go to school and most importantly has friends and is happy. He took (and comfortably passed) English GCSE 2 years early (his choice) and comes home full of interesting information he wants to share.
Head Teacher’s understanding of and skill with our amazing, complicated children is genuinely second to none and I would recommend Wemms to any parent.

As a parent, there is nothing more important than my children. I could see my two daughters were not getting the correct education from mainstream education. With their special needs, it was clear they needed more help. This is exactly what they got from WEMMS. Both my daughters are flourishing, educationally and socially, from their time there and I cannot thank enough.

Wemms is for many young people including my own son, a life saver and an opportunity to start afresh. The wonderfully safe & embracing environment of this school gives the young adults a sense of security and critically belonging that allows them to re engage with education and develop into citizens of our age… fabulous place from which many other schools could learn.

Wemms does amazing things for those struggling with their education and has hugely helped my son secure his GCSEs and move on to A-levels. The school has recently moved to a spectacular new location with massive grounds!

My daughter has only been in the school for 4 months and the change in her is significant. Following many years in the mainstream system she is now for the first time learning; she is communicating more and most importantly she has never been happier. All my families and friends have commented on the difference Wemms has made for her and I’m grateful she’s here. Thank you

Our daughter has Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. School after school had failed to cope with these and she had fallen years behind in terms of both academic progress and social ability. Quite naturally, she ended up refusing to go to schools which for her were hostile, unsafe places where she felt bullied and misunderstood. Wemms was a last hope. Since joining Wemms our daughter’s progress has been remarkable. Her academics have made huge progress. Socially she is a different child, able to make friends and interact with people confidently. In her own words she “loves her school”. Wemms has provided exceptional pastoral care combined with a holistic approach to her education that has allowed her develop on all fronts. Thank you Wemms. Please keep up the good work which make our daughter’s future look so bright.

Our Autistic son came to Wemms after being at several different schools and immediately found a home that he was able to learn and grow in. A nurturing environment that after one term we have noticed a difference in his outlook towards life and his abilities to cope. We love Wemms because of this!

I just wanted to let you know that Poppy passed her theory test yesterday and is absolutely delighted! She is loving her lessons with the teacher and it's all thanks to Wemms. Both she, I and Paul can't thank you enough for your support with this.
I have also been so impressed with the teachers, both at the review evening and for the online revision sessions. The kindness, patience and support is incredible and again much appreciated!
Passing her test yesterday has given Poppy a taste for success and made her more determined to get through the exams. Something at times I thought I would never see.

We haven’t read and won’t read the short sighted Offstead report because Wemms has helped our son so much that we don’t care what it says!
We just care that Wemms continues as the amazing place that it is!
Thank you for being so excellent. You have all our support!

Our son is in Year 12 at Wemms, where he has been a pupil since September 2020. Like many other parents and children, we had experienced very challenging times when he was a mainstream pupil, times that were fraught with worry and much upset for all of us.
When our son started at Wemms, he had high rejection anxiety having never felt he belonged in any previous school and rejections from 5 independent schools even though we knew, and everyone else told us he was bright with high academic potential. Not only this, but our family was exhausted from the struggle, the constant advocating and fight to get our son the education he so deserved and needed.
Wind the clock forward 3 academic years and we have a young adult who believes in himself and his many talents. His self-esteem continues to improve, and he has certainty that his future is bright, that he can achieve whatever he wants and that he can live a happy and fulfilled life. Wemms have taken an emotionally distressed boy and turned him into a young man we are all so proud of.
Thank you Wemms

I have absolutely no idea what you have all done over the past few days, but want to thank you all profusely for giving us our wonderful little girl back.
For the past 7 years, our daughter has detested school with every last ounce of her being. Every single day she would tell us numerous times just how much she hated school, and the tears started as soon as she woke up. The battle to get her through the school door was traumatic for everyone involved, and it took several adults manoeuvring and manhandling her from us and then locking doors afterwards to ensure she couldn't escape. It is fair to say that the entire family suffered from the emotional outbursts our daughter had every evening after being forced to spend the day at her previous school.
However, this weekend was different. She has told everyone about Wemms and how much she has enjoyed her first few days. I have no idea how your team has transformed her back into our wonderful daughter again so quickly but you really have.
I know how much hard work, effort, kindness, compassion, understanding, and teamwork have gone into making this possible, and we are truly grateful. The late night and weekend emails by yourselves and your team also haven't gone unnoticed.
Wemms really is a magical place, how else can this transformation have happened?
Two very grateful parents
