becoming a wetherby boy
Boys may be registered at any time up to the end of the Autumn Term (16 December) of the preceding year before entry. 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 email@example.com or telephone 020 7535 3526
All prospective parents have been invited to attend our annual Open Evening on Wednesday 14 October 2020 between 6 and 8pm, however this event will now have to be postponed until such time as we are permitted to have large gatherings of visitors to the School. 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 (11th January 2021) 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.
7 and 8+ Assessment Day on 11th January 2021 will now be postponed. The Assessment will now take place in the week commencing 18 January either at the applicant’s school or via a Wetherby Prep Zoom call. All prospective parents have been contacted about the new arrangements – please contact Lorna Charles as soon as possible if you have not received details of the arrangements for your son.
The school has a small intake of 12 boys (one class) at Year 3 and a further intake of 70 (four classes) at Year 4. Wetherby Pre-Prep 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 download and return the Waiting List Form below if you are interested in joining Wetherby Prep outside of the normal 7 and 8+ entry.
