Lower School Curriculum

Boys enter the Lower School in Year 7 (11+) and are welcomed into a safe, nurturing environment which fosters their growing confidence and academic development. This enables a smooth transition from the smaller environment of a primary or preparatory school to the larger community of a senior school.

A form tutor is assigned to each class for Year 7 and 8 to ensure continuity of care during the boys’ early years at Wetherby, but subjects are taught by subject specialists in each department. A unique feature of what we offer the boys at Wetherby Senior is the supervised prep sessions which are built into the school day, starting in Year 7, encouraging them to develop more independent learning styles.

In the Lower School, the boys follow a well rounded and broad curriculum.
