Education and Learning
Our pupils are assessed at key points in their education to identify their strengths and areas for improvement or support. This may mean they are fast-streamed and take a GCSE or A level subject early. Or they may receive additional in-class or one-to-one support to help them access the curriculum. We provide extra tuition to support both subject and specific learning issues.
Pupils who may have struggled in other environments, find our personalised learning suits them and enables them to reach new horizons. Targets are set regularly for all pupils by all departments. They are shared widely and promote real improvement: often above normal expectations.
From their first day at Webber Independent School, children are affiliated to a House, regardless of which section of the school they enter. The House system supports the horizontal tutoring system enabling pupils of all ages to mix and share their daily experiences and routines. This fosters the caring, family atmosphere by making sure all pupils are mentored, included and nurtured: academically and pastorally.
Core values in practice
Webber Independent School belongs to the GEMS family of international schools whose motto is “learn, aspire, be”. The organisation’s four core values, world citizenship; universal values; leadership, and forward thinking, are embedded into the school’s daily practice.
We are an inclusive private school in a multi-cultural city. Pupils of different backgrounds integrate, are tolerant and understanding of each other and their different cultural perspectives. We partner a school in China to develop our practical enjoyment of world citizenship.

Our flexible curriculum enables children of all abilities to have a challenging and personalised approach developing them into independent learners with a life-long enjoyment of learning.
Our community service programme develops leadership and forward thinking, and encourages pupils to give something back to the community. In turn this gives them a wider appreciation of society, and helps them to develop universal values.
