Wetherby Senior Great Men Initiative

Our partnership with Good Lad Initiative

All boys from Year 9 upwards benefit from our work with Good Lad Initiative; a team of men who aim to get boys talking about masculinity and gender stereotypes. They are given the opportunity to discuss topics including sexuality, violence, emotional wellbeing, objectification & body image, sex, sexism and consent. The boys take part in bespoke, age-appropriate workshops, tailored to the needs of the year group. As the boys progress through the school, these workshops build on the various themes and issues covered each year. Our school’s values are incorporated into the work done by the team at Good Lad Initiative, helping us to guide Wetherby boys through adolescence. In addition, Good Lad Initiative deliver staff training and parent talks to ensure whole community involvement.

Great Men Lecture Series

The Great Men Lecture Series complements our partnership with the team at Good Lad Initiative. We prepare the boys to be ambitious and successful within their chosen field, whilst also being ready to contribute fully to both society and to the communities in which they live and work.

We want our boys to grow into men who:

  • Embody the values of our school
  • Lead with integrity and sound judgement
  • Are emotionally resilient; able to learn from their mistakes and be self-aware
  • Are articulate, empathetic and non-judgemental
  • Are good role models to others.

Lectures are held on Friday afternoons, when speakers inspire the boys as they share their life experiences. They link their success in the workplace to the values that have made them into great men and suitable role models for our boys.

Lectures are followed with the opportunity for Q&A and networking.

Forthcoming speakers:

  • Ollie Rosenblatt (Founder of Senbla; a London a based concert promoting and production company, promoting shows and national tours throughout various venues in the UK)
  • Willem Marx (TV, radio and magazine journalist)
  • Neill Stephen (Head of Legal at Bupa and the only man in UK history to have 2 fishing records)
