Values and vision 

Wetherby Prep. has developed a reputation over the years as one of the most sought-after prep schools for boys in Central London. We attribute that success, of course, to a meticulously planned academic curriculum, which sees our boys continue their senior education at some of the most prestigious schools, but then there is our extraordinary range of sporting, club and excursion opportunities, which introduces our boys to such varied experiences, endowing them with the life skills to address new challenges with a spirit of optimism and flexibility of outlook. We promote a “can do” culture at our school, one in which boys are equipped with a value system that serves and supports them throughout their time with us and well into the future, helping them to become the well-balanced, responsible young men that they do.

But, this is not achieved by us in isolation. We believe strongly in a “Wetherby Community”. A productive relationship between parents and school is integral to our boys’ success story. We do not wish to keep our parents at arm’s length, indeed we welcome your engagement with us. Being a Wetherby parent is just as important as being a Wetherby boy and we look forward to meeting you and getting to know you over the years to come.
