Careers

The role of the Careers department is to help your son build a solid foundation for his future career management. By helping him to understand his aptitudes and abilities, skills and interests we aim to support the transition from school to university and later into the working world.

As part of the School’s commitment to encouraging breadth of opportunity and motivation to follow their passions, we aim to translate the boys’ time at Wetherby Senior into education and career decisions that will be rewarded with fulfilment and success. 

Each year group has a Careers Programme which is modified and updated annually as necessary in the light of pupil and parent feedback.
