Happy child at school

About Us

Wetherby School provides an environment that promotes educational excellence and tradition through a forward-thinking, holistic curriculum within which the needs of individual pupils are fostered.

The Wetherby boys begin their learning journey at 19 Pembridge Villas and can start in either Little Wetherby, our nursery, or Reception. 11 Pembridge Square is housed in a freehold, double-fronted listed building of the Italian Ornate style, dating back to 1849. It overlooks the beautiful Pembridge Square Gardens, where the boys enjoy play time each day. This building is for the boys in Years 1, 2 and 3.

With the opening of the Preparatory School in 2004, Wetherby boys have the opportunity to proceed through, or sit a competitive exam for, a London Day School. Wetherby has an excellent reputation in placing boys in top London Day Schools at both 7+ and 8+.

The Headmaster of Wetherby School is Paul David.  Previously, he was Headmaster of Dulwich Prep Cranbrook and, prior to that, Headmaster of Eaton Square School in London.  With further experience as Deputy Headmaster of Colet Court, St Paul’s Preparatory School (now called St Paul’s Juniors) where he taught Mathematics in both the prep and the senior school, and as a Housemaster at the City of London Freemen’s school, he has gained an in-depth knowledge of both prep and senior schools in London and the South-East. Mr David studied Education at the University of Exeter and holds a master’s Level Executive Coaching qualification from the Institute of Leadership and Management.  He is married to Nicky, also a teacher, and they have 2 grown-up children.
