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.
The adopted motto of the school is ‘Care, Share and be Fair’. These are the underlying principles of all that we stand for at Wetherby. Every boy is encouraged to be the best that he can be and every member of staff is committed to enabling each individual to fulfil his potential and achieve his goal. The school is a very happy place, an energetic and forward learning environment, whilst retaining the best of educational traditions.
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’.
