Wetherby Senior’s Sixth Form prepares our young people for future study and employment, combining academic excellence with guidance on applying to university in the UK and overseas, a rich careers programme and range of co-curricular activities, and strong pastoral support.
Within our Sixth Form, boys follow three A Levels and an EPQ qualification.
Our Sixth Form’s supportive learning environment means our sixth formers are guided by highly skilled teachers in small classes, whilst our pastoral support (with each boy having a tutor to provide support and guidance) and co-curricular activities help develop confidence, self-discipline, independence, and curiosity.

Our facilities include Sixth Form study rooms and a common room, while our location in Marylebone ensures our sixth formers go beyond their A Levels by attending workshops or lectures with business leaders, participating in conferences or research programmes at top universities or visiting the many museums, galleries, theatres, exhibitions and more to be found across London.
Wetherby Senior is committed to supporting all our boys in their higher education ambitions and our outstanding A Level results means boys can join top universities. Our most recent cohort – our Class of 22 – have joined previous Wetherby Senior alumni in taking up places at world-class institutions around the globe.
For our Class of 22, of those staying in the UK, 76% joined Russell Group universities in autumn 2022. Our alumni are now studying at institutions in London (such as Imperial College London, UCL and King’s College London) and across the UK, including Manchester, Edinburgh, Exeter and York.
In addition, of our sixth formers starting university this autumn, 43% applied to study outside the UK, including institutions across continental Europe. This means Wetherby Senior alumni are now studying at IE University in Spain, Bocconi University in Italy, and the University of Amsterdam in The Netherlands.
