Wetherby Senior School offers a rich co-curricular programme, the primary purpose of which is to develop confidence, team work and leadership skills – key elements of the boys’ character and an important support to their academic learning.
We offer an extensive range of activities, from fencing, yoga and basketball to cookery, orchestra and coding enabling the boys to develop their interests and ideas. There is also an opportunity for boys to gain a greater perspective on important social, political and cultural issues through a range of talks, clubs and societies.
Community Service takes the form of assisting local schools, charities or local projects allowing the boys to make a positive contribution to society. The boys are also encouraged to take part in other community-based activities including the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Sixth Form boys all take part in either Model United Nations or Young Enterprise, enabling them to develop their initiative and leadership skills. They are also encouraged to assist with activities involving the younger boys at School, whether it be assisting with Debating Club or running rehearsals for the School’s Drama productions.
The boys enjoy expeditions and adventures at home and abroad and all take part in an annual residential trip. Throughout the year each of our departments also run a variety of optional academic and co-curricular excursions for the boys.
Academic catch-ups are available to all Year 10 and 11 boys throughout the week should they require additional help with a subject.
