Alpha Plus Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Miss Kate Bailey as the founding Head of Wetherby-Pembridge School New York.

Miss Bailey takes up her new role after five highly successful years as Senior Deputy Head at Wetherby Preparatory School in London. Miss Bailey will be taking up her new position in January 2017.

Earlier in the year, Alpha Plus announced the opening of Wetherby-Pembridge School New York, which will welcome its first students in September 2017.

Wetherby-Pembridge School New York will be located on the Upper East Side, in a superb Beaux-Arts mansion designed by Ogden Codman in 1913 and located next to Central Park on East 96th Street. The building will undergo a comprehensive multi-million dollar refurbishment and re-configuration with Montroy Anderson DeMarco design practice.

The school will offer a bespoke curriculum combining the rigorous British National Curriculum and New York’s progressive, student-centred teaching approach.
