Headmaster's Welcome

In its short history, Wetherby Senior School has built a respectful, caring community which focuses on providing the boys with an all-round education that will prepare them to face the challenges of the modern world.  A rigorous academic curriculum, complimented by a broad range of activities, along with music, sport and drama, allows the boys to develop their passions and, hopefully, to discover new ones.  Our curriculum is not just about the acquisition of knowledge but also teaching the boys the skills they need now and in the future.  The depth of the curriculum combined with the breadth of opportunity is designed to help them grow into young men who are adaptable and resilient, who can be creative and collaborative and who are equipped to continuing learning throughout their lives.

Throughout their time in the School, the boys are supported by tutors and other members of the pastoral team.  The tutor’s oversight of his tutees, and the strong relationships that are built, mean that they are able to help the boys flourish and grow, so that they are able to be happy, proud of who they are and ready to contribute positively to the life of the community.

I am particularly fortunate to have joined the Wetherby Senior School community at an exciting time in its development.  In the coming year, new facilities will be opened that will allow us to develop an exciting and modern curriculum and expand the opportunities on offer.  Our first Year 11 cohort will move into a new, purpose-built Sixth Form Centre that will prepare them for the next stage of their education at universities here and abroad.

Whilst the website will give you some insights into life at Wetherby Senior School, I encourage you and your son to visit us to learn about the next phase of our development, either at one of our Open Days or by arranging an individual visit during the School day.  I look forward to meeting you.
