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.

With the support of friends and peers, our students' self-confidence and independence of spirit grow. They learn to be resilient learners, able to manage risk and the tough challenges that life can present. ...Read more

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Headmistress

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.
