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 adopted motto of Wetherby 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 happy and vibrant one, an energetic and forward learning environment, whilst retaining the best of educational traditions.
