What says..

Everyone feels the positive impact and thrill of the creative curriculum; most notably these exciting projects have helped the children develop their writing skills. Playing fields, cricket pitch, tennis courts, a lovely wildlife area and gardens provide numerous outdoor and sporting opportunities. The children grow fruit, vegetables and flowers and are taught about which plants will attract particular birds and insects.  Friday film club run by a parent in conjunction with the British Film Institute has produced some successful young film critics...

What the school says...

We completed a period of expansion to 3 forms of entry in 2011, including having a new wing built onto the school. The new building enables us to have extra specialist facilities such as a purpose built music room, a second ICT suite, a cookery room and an After School Club area. The expansion has also enabled us to redevelop the playground and install new playground equipment and interesting play surfaces.

Wimbledon Chase is a happy and vibrant school. Visitors comment on the stunning grounds and sports facilities. We are proud of our outstanding reputation.

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.

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Head teacher

Since 2001, Mrs Sue Tomes (60s) BEd NPQH. She arrived at the school as a French teacher over 30 years ago, ascending through the ranks as head of French, senior mistress and deputy head, and finally took the helm. Parents can't praise her enough for her almost lifelong dedication to the school and its pupils. Considered hard working and cheerful, one of those rare characters who makes time for everybody and everything, say parents. Popular with her pupils too; 'She is a lovely person,' one small pupil informed us.

Mrs Tomes maintains her links with France and is an avid supporter of teaching primary school children modern foreign languages across Merton. Part of her philosophy is that the children should be exposed to many different opportunities and experiences to...

Special Education Needs

At Wimbledon Chase we have an additionally resourced provision for pupils with speech, language and communication disorders. The key stage 1 unit is called The Ark and the key stage 2 unit is called The Study. Both provide specialist teaching for up to 18 pupils from nursery to year 6. The children attend The Ark and Study in the mornings, where they receive their literacy and numeracy lessons from a special needs teacher and three learning support assistants. They also receive regular speech and language therapy and occupational therapy. For all other lessons, they return to their classes with their learning support assistants. Staff are trained in a variety of techniques including: Makaton, social skills, SEAL small group work training, speech & language therapy, play therapy, drama therapy, etc. We pride ourselves on being a fully inclusive school. All children have equal access to the wider curriculum as well as participating in school trips, theatre workshops and sports activities.
