What says..

Parents say: ‘easy to talk to, professional, approachable and dedicated’. Girls love her. Teaches verbal reasoning in preparation for 11+ and hears infant readers. Non-controversial. Has been around for over 13 years, but no plans to move on.  Do we hear parents breathing a sigh of relief? Our guides - happy, vivacious year 6s – obviously loved their school and were quick to show us everything that was going on.  A library on every floor – ‘we’re at the top and ours is the best!’ (Well, it did contain a large display of cups.)...

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
