I am delighted to welcome you to Wetherby-Pembridge School, New York.
As the Head of School, I am excited to build on the incredible legacy of my predecessor, the Founding Head of School Kate Bailey, to further enhance the school’s reputation as a leading New York institution of learning. While we share in the rich legacy of the Wetherby family of schools in London, we believe we have forged an exciting and forward-looking approach to the education and personal development of our boys and girls.
We take a holistic approach to the education of your child from Nursery through to Grade 8. Every child is unique at Wetherby-Pembridge and we have built a nurturing environment where the school’s values of respect, resilience and responsibility are reinforced daily throughout the school community.
Our teachers and staff aim to foster a curiosity in learning, an ability to think beyond the walls of the school while maintaining a focus on each child as an individual. We are academically ambitious for our children and follow the rigorous English National Curriculum reinforced by the best of New York City’s educational practice. We believe this gives our children the maximum educational optionality in their journey through school and onwards into university education.
We take advantage of the wonderful cultural and co-curricular opportunities presented by our location on the Upper East Side. We want your child to experience New York at its finest – with Central Park on our doorstep, the rich cultural attractions of ‘museum mile’ and through strong partnerships with other outstanding New York educational and community programs. We believe the families of our children are an integral part of our community and we encourage a passionate and engaged parental body to be involved in the school.
I would be delighted to welcome you to Wetherby-Pembridge to meet our inspirational and dedicated teachers, myself most importantly our lively and curious pupils.
Head of School
