What The Good Schools Guide says..
A somewhat unexciting entrance to the building belies the buzz that you get as you walk round it. Stone staircases lead to bright corridors, windows onto the happy, busy atmosphere that emanates both from classrooms and laboratories. Girls look relaxed...
What the school says...
Wimbledon High School students are lively, creative and academically successful. In a stimulating, intellectually challenging and friendly environment, girls enjoy a fully rounded school life, getting involved and taking the lead from an early age.

Since September 2014, Mrs Jane Lunnon BA (Bristol) (40s). A North London Collegiate School alumna, read English at university and, after an initial career in marketing, decided she’d prefer to teach. Immediately found a job at Wellington College where 12 years saw her progressing to head of English and assistant director of studies. Then to Priors Field as head of sixth form and, later, deputy head. Returned to Wellington in 2010 as senior deputy to Anthony Seldon, who, she says, taught her to ‘be ambitious in your aims’.

Special Education Needs
We aim to support every student to become a successful independent learner with high self-esteem. We identify students with particular educational needs and aim to help them achieve their best, and help teachers devise classroom strategies to support their learning. Study skills and time management workshops are provided for individual year groups. All students are screened for Specific Learning Difficulties during their time in the junior school and in year 7. New entrants to the senior school in years 8-13 are also routinely screened. We are committed to developing a close relationship with parents, informing them about, and involving them in, all decisions relating to the students. If a Specific Learning Difficulty is identified, we hope that parents will agree to pay for support tuition and an Educational Psychologist's assessment if required. An Individual Educational Plan with specific targets is drawn up and the student's progress monitored closely. There are students at Wimbledon High School with dyslexia, dyspraxia and dsycalculia. We aim to offer careful and sensitive management so that teaching and learning can proceed in a positive fashion. Both junior and senior departments have Learning Support Co-ordinators and Able and Gifted Co-ordinators. Visiting Learning Support teachers come into the junior school. The senior school offers advice and links for students with English as an Additional Language.
