At Wetherby High School all our staff are deeply committed to ensuring every child receives an outstanding education. Our curriculum, teaching and pastoral care enable students to achieve at the highest academic level, unlocking doors to the future of their choice.
Our staff and students are ambitious to be the best version of themselves. That ambition extends way beyond their academic excellence. We want our students to reach their full potential academically and as young people moving into adulthood. We understand that central to this is developing character and a sense of social responsibility.
Our Coaching System allows us to know each student well as individuals, their likes and dislikes, their strengths and insecurities, their interests, pets and favourite TV programmes. It means as a Coach you can be there for them on the good and bad days. The relationships formed in Coaching allow the students to feel they belong to the school community. That belonging brings happiness, safety and a platform from which to challenge themselves in their education.
This is a place where young people can be successful not only in their schoolwork but also in their school life. We have so many opportunities for students – and secondary school is the perfect time for them to experiment and discover where their interests and passions lie.
We place the children and their personal success at the heart of all our work which means that sometimes we do not take the easiest path, but the path that is right for each individual child. We know that when a child feels safe, happy and supported they thrive. We are truly proud that our work in this area was signified as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
