Wetherby Senior sixth formers have been snapping around London, taking photos of what our capital city means to them.
Sixth formers at Wetherby Senior can take on numerous leadership responsibilities, supporting life across our School whilst developing important transferable skills useful for any future career, like public speaking.
Our prefect posts include Head Boy, Deputy Head Boy and prefects, and you apply during Year 12 for these exciting opportunities to provide leadership, manage teams, and act as role models to younger boys, with responsibilities ranging from helping with open events to assisting with life across Wetherby Senior. In recognition of the honour of being a prefect, you have access to a Prefect Office at Hannah House, are awarded a prefect tie and different shirt, and can attend our Prefect Dinner at the end of Year 13.

Our School Council consists of representatives from all year groups, who meet every half-term to make important decisions around community service, such as agreeing on the charities our School will support through fundraising activities.
Our Year 12 academic mentors are trained to help younger pupils with different subjects. Working with Heads of Department, you will be assigned a younger pupil to support each week, which could mean helping to boost a pupil’s performance in class, supporting their understanding of their prep, or extending and challenging their learning to a higher level.
Our Year 12 peer mentors undertake training to support younger pupils and act as a ‘big brother’ role model. You may meet your mentees regularly or on a more ad-hoc basic. You would receive training to ensure you can approach discussions seriously and sensitively, as issues discussed could vary, from school to home life.
