about us

headmaster’s welcome

The past thirteen years at Wetherby Preparatory School have been tremendously exciting ones, securing firm foundations for a thriving and dynamic future. Our superbly renovated and equipped premises enable us to meet an ever-increasing demand for first-class preparatory education in the very heart of London. Increasing roll numbers and the schools at which our boys continue their education, some of the most prestigious public schools in the country, inspire confidence in Wetherby Prep as the preparatory school of choice in central London.

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. Wide-ranging clubs, sports and visits are to be expected of a school of our calibre 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 in order to discuss the expectations and aspirations you have for your son, together with any other matters that you wish to raise. As the father of two young boys myself, I fully understand the importance of your decision. I look forward to meeting you.
