Wetherby Senior School is an 11-18 all-boys school, carrying on the traditions established at Wetherby Pre-Preparatory School and Wetherby Preparatory School. Boys enter at Year 7 or Year 9, progressing through to Sixth Form, before they transition to the top universities in the UK and abroad.

Wetherby stands for aspiration, competition and inclusion for all boys, and creates a community of which all staff, parents and children feel a part. With an incredibly skilled, dedicated, personable, creative and communicative teaching staff, Wetherby Senior aims to ensure that boys experience an education that is uniquely ‘Wetherby’.
