Welcome to Senior School

Preparing for the future

Whether this is the start of your Webber journey, or indeed the finale, Senior School is a time where young minds begin to experience extra responsibilities, flex their academic muscle in new ways and prepare for the rigours of the GCSE examinations.

It is at this point in the Webber journey that our students truly benefit from our small class sizes. At The Webber Independent we deliver personalised learning and enhance the National Curriculum with additional subjects, extra-curricular activities, clubs, societies and enrichment trips and workshops. We offer a modern approach to private education in a down-to-earth, collaborative and inclusive environment.

We offer a diverse range of GCSE subjects, and have a track record of strong performance in the highly academic subjects of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, English Language and English Literature. We do offer flexibility and cater to different levels of ability and talent; for example, some students may decide to take early entry GCSE Mathematics (in Year 10) – providing the opportunity to study Further Mathematics (in Year 11).

The Webber Team will do all they can to assist students transitioning from Year 9 to Year 10, supporting the important decision-making process around subject selection. We use Cambridge Online Assessments and one-to-one interviews to help focus our young people’s choices around their strengths and talents.

Our track record of strong GCSE results demonstrates that our approach to education delivers. So, from Year 7 to Year 11, you can be assured that your son or daughter’s education is in good hands.

Historically just under half of all examinations taken at Webber are awarded the top grades (9-7)
