Welcome to the Wetherby website. We do hope it captures the flavour of what life is like at Wetherby and reflects the fun and vibrant atmosphere that the boys and staff create each day.
We believe that all boys should be happy, well-rounded and confident learners who are respectful, thoughtful and motivated Wetherby Ambassadors. We also believe that the qualities of integrity, kindness and good manners are at the heart of what we do. The aim of our school is to create an atmosphere of care both in and out of school; this is for all users of the school, including children, parents, staff and the community. The aim at Wetherby is to ensure every boy has a happy and fulfilling experience. At Wetherby School we are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our boys so they can learn and play in a relaxed and secure environment. By providing this environment we believe that all pupils will be able to reach their individual potential.
Wetherby has a deserved reputation as being in the very front rank of pre-prep schools. Each individual boy really matters to us and we pride ourselves on developing confident and happy children with a zest for life and a love of learning.
As one parent wrote, ‘Wetherby boys are allowed to be boys; they are not punished for having a joke and fun or being rowdy during outside breaks, or being competitive at sport. But despite their healthy boyishness and sense of fun, the children are incredibly polite, caring and considerate and respectful to each other and adults.’
