becoming a wetherby boy

Boys may be registered at any time up to the end of the Autumn Term (15 December)  of the preceding year before entry.   Please register using the links below:

Internal (from Wetherby School or Wetherby Kensington)

External (from all other pre-prep schools)

Parents are encouraged to make an appointment for a tour of the school where they can get an insight into life at Wetherby Prep. Please contact the school office and speak to our School Secretaries or email or telephone 020 7535 3526.

All prospective parents are invited to attend our annual Open Evening on Wednesday 13 October 2021 between 6 and 8pm.  If parents are interested in visiting the school, please contact  020 7535 3520 to arrange a meeting with Mr Baker and short tour of the building.  Due to demand for private tours, priority is given to parents of boys who will be sitting the 7+ and 8+ in the following year.

Additionally, and alternatively, we have recently filmed and posted a ‘virtual tour’ on our YouTube site.  Please visit this and also our end of year Prize Giving ‘Wetherflix’, to get the best possible impression of our school without visiting the premises.

In September, registered boys will be invited to attend the January 7+ and 8+ Assessment Day (Monday 10 January 2022) Here, they will sit short tests in English and Maths and take part in group based activities. Offers for entry into Year 3 and 4 will be made a few weeks later with the deadline for acceptances by spring half term.

The school has a small intake of 12-16 boys (one class) at Year 3 and a further intake of 70 (four classes) at Year 4.  Wetherby School and Wetherby Kensington boys automatically feed into the school at Year 4.

Wetherby is a family school and siblings always have priority on entry.

We are currently full in all year groups but occasional places do occur from time to time.  Please complete the Waiting List Form if you are interested in joining Wetherby Prep outside of the normal 7 and 8+ entry.
