Wetherby Preparatory School

Wetherby Preparatory School



The past few years at Wetherby Preparatory School have been tremendously exciting ones, with widespread academic, sporting and extra-curricular successes for our boys. Our award by the Tatler Schools’ Guide as Preparatory School of the Year in September 2012, together with an excellent report by the Independent Schools' Inspectorate in May 2012, strengthens further our resolve to be the preparatory school of choice in central London. The schools at which our boys continue their education, some of the most prestigious public schools in the country, inspire confidence in that vision.

Such success is a shared venture, achieved jointly by our boys, their parents and a superb teaching and support team. Together, a distinct ethos, characterised by a commitment to boys’ education in the broadest terms, has been created. Parents, whose boys are new to our school, are reassured by an evidently challenging academic curriculum that maintains rigour and pace for all, supported by an established and effective system of pastoral care. We have a wide-ranging clubs, sports and visits programme and there is rarely a lunchtime when boys are not discussing eagerly a much anticipated activity or excursion.


I hope that our website will inspire you to visit. You are welcome to come and see us as we are, during a normal school day - there is no better way to form a judgement. I would be delighted to meet with you personally to discuss the expectations and aspirations you have for your son. As the father of two young boys myself, I fully understand the importance of your decision.

I look forward to meeting you.
