School Houses


At Wetherby School each boy will be grouped into a House.  Boys will know their House before they start school and any new boys that arrive during the academic year will be allocated to a House. Through our House system, boys are rewarded across many aspects of daily school life.

The names of the Houses and associated colours are as follows:

  • Marlborough     Green
  • Montgomery     Yellow
  • Nelson                  Blue
  • Wellington          Red

The names of the Houses are based on famous British military leaders.

House Stars

House stars can be given to individual pupils for: academic achievement and effort in learning; service to Wetherby School and others; good manners and behaviour.  House stars are recorded onto House star charts which are displayed in the boys’ classrooms.

Collective House Rewards

There will be a weekly reward for the House who has earned the most House stars.  The winning House will be presented with the Wetherby Bear in the Years 1, 2 and 3 school assembly on Monday morning and to Reception on Tuesday morning.  The Wetherby Bear will wear a scarf in the colour of the winning House. The totals for each House will be displayed on the House noticeboard in the hall at 11 Pembridge Square and the House notice board in the entrance hall at 19 Pembridge Villas.  A picture of the House cup will be displayed on the board for the House that has the most House stars.

At the end of the term one House will be awarded the House cup.  This is for the House who has received the most House stars over the term.  This will be presented in the final whole school assembly at the end of the autumn and spring term and at prize giving in the summer term.
