Wetherby-Pembridge offers a unique education for your children in New York City.

As we look forward to welcoming our founding families to Wetherby-Pembridge this September, it is good to see our school community beginning to grow and flourish. Our families have the chance to be part of an exciting school journey from the Nursery through to Grade 5 based on the trademark success of our schools in London.

Our beautiful school building at 7 East 96th Street marries the classic and traditional with a fresh and new design and its close proximity to Central Park and Museum Mile make it an ideal location for extended learning.

Combining the very best of British and American education our high academic standards, traditions and sense of warmth and humour will create a child centred environment where unique needs and learning styles are met and children have the chance to excel.

The school days are vibrant and full of opportunity; where social responsibility, citizenship, and good character are as important as intellectual success. We help every child develop a sense of balance and a healthy overall perspective of the world.

Our faculty has been drawn from a wide pool of talent.  Each person brings expertise, energy and commitment that will enthuse and inspire your children and ensure you as parents and carers are part of that important educational journey.

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
