Headmaster’s Blog 01.10.21

I hope that this finds you well. The school has felt rather empty this week as we waved off all of Years 7 and 9 on Wednesday on residential visits. At the time of writing, the dispatches we have received back here at HQ are all positive – the boys seem to really be enjoying themselves and (in the main) the weather has held up nicely! As with so many aspects of school life over these past few weeks, it is great to be able to offer trips and visits again as they are such an integral part of the broad offer that we make here. It is often the case that when pupils look back on their time in a school, their experiences on tips and visits stand out. They are a chance to cement and develop friendships, to challenge oneself in unfamiliar settings, and to come together as a class / year etc. and enjoy a shared experience. For the boys out this week, I very much hope that this has been the case and although they will be tired this weekend, they will be able to say that the trips were well worth it. Of course, trips do not happen without significant input from members of staff, and I’d like to thank all those staff who have been away this week and given up their time so that the Wetherby pupils can have the best possible experience.

This week has seen the last of my ‘Meet the Headmaster’ coffee mornings, and I have very much enjoyed all of them – it has been wonderful to meet so many of you in person and to begin to get to know you. As I have said to many of you, schools work best when there is honest and open communication between all parties, and I would encourage you to remember this – if there is anything at all you have questions about, or would like to share with us, please do not hesitate to get in touch. For matters relating directly to your son, please write to his form tutor in the first instance.

It is our Open Day this Saturday, and I want to thank you in advance for supporting us with your son’s presence as a tour guide! The boys are the very best ambassadors the school could hope to have, and I know that I will feel very proud indeed watching them guide groups around the school and share with prospective parents what a wonderful place this is.

With best wishes for the weekend.
