What the school says...
Wimbledon High Juniors is an academically selective school offering a truly creative curriculum. We harness children's natural curiosity and imagination, allowing our pupils to make connections between different subjects and thereby promoting independent learning. Small enough to know and care for your daughter, we benefit from being part of a bigger whole, offering first rate facilities: our own swimming pool, performing arts centre, specialist teaching rooms for science, ICT, design and technology, art and music. We have a sports centre and netball court on site; our all-weather playing fields are a ten-minute walk away. With a range of exciting extra-curricular opportunities outside the classroom, your daughter will thrive, and the self-confidence she gains will be excellent preparation for the next stage of her education at 11. ...Read more
