Wetherby Kensington provides an environment that promotes educational excellence and tradition through a forward-thinking, holistic curriculum within which the needs of individual pupils are fostered.
Wetherby Kensington will follow the same curriculum, share the same values and ethos as Wetherby School and will be an integral part of the Wetherby Group of schools. The school is for boys from Reception to Year 3 and is two form entry per year group. The boys will receive the same high levels of academic education and pastoral care currently found at Wetherby School. The Wetherby Kensington boys begin their learning journey in Reception and can stay at Wetherby Kensington until they are eight years old. Wetherby Kensington can be found in Wetherby Gardens and is in a conservation area. The school overlooks the beautiful Wetherby Gardens.
With the opening of the Preparatory School in 2004, Wetherby boys have the opportunity to proceed through, or sit a competitive exam for, a London Day School.
Helen Milnes has been appointed as the founding Head of Wetherby Kensington. Prior to this, Miss Milnes was Deputy Head (Pastoral) at Wetherby School for six years and has also worked in a number of schools in the north of England and in Milan, Italy. Miss Milnes studied music and teaching at the University of Leeds.
The adopted motto of Wetherby Kensington is ‘Care, share and be fair’. These are the underlying principles of all that we stand for at Wetherby Kensington. Every boy is encouraged to be the best that he can be and every member of staff is committed to enabling each individual to fulfil his potential and achieve his goal. The school is a happy and vibrant one, an energetic and forward learning environment, whilst retaining the best of educational traditions.
