Pastoral Care

Wellbeing underpins all we do at Wetherby Senior and, with just over 400 pupils, we are proud to know each boy as an individual.

Our pastoral system

At Wetherby Senior, our much-praised pastoral system is led by our Deputy Head: Pastoral and managed by our Heads of Section, with support from our network of form tutors. Our form tutors stay in close contact with parents regarding their son’s progress and remain the first point of contact.

Alongside this, our School’s highly qualified wellbeing team includes two professionals who provide counselling and coaching to nurture the wellbeing and personal development of our boys.

Hear more from our Deputy Head: Pastoral, Assistant Head: Head of Lower School and Assistant Head: Head of Middle School about wellbeing, academic studies and co-curricular opportunities at Wetherby Senior.

Our house system

Wetherby Senior’s much-loved house system is known as Tribs, short for Tributaries, since each is named after one of London’s hidden rivers – Effra, Fleet, Ravensbourne, Tyburn and Walbrook. Creating a fantastic sense of belonging, our Tribs mean boys feel part of Wetherby Senior from their first day, while providing a fun way to make friends in other years and take on leadership responsibilities.

Our inter-Trib competitions (including music, drama, sport, debating, individual subjects, and more) provide friendly rivalry, alongside cooperation with others in their Trib, as boys work towards winning our coveted end-of-year Thames Trophy.
