What says..

New philosophy-led curriculum, ‘Adventum,' challenges the girls to tackle the big questions and important texts. ‘Experientia’ is an academic enrichment layer for year 3 onward addressing current topics that ‘tap into the zeitgeist,' like fake news or whether artists should be covered by the government’s covid furlough scheme.

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.

Before that head of lower school and on the senior leadership team of Ravenscourt Park Prep, so considerable experience teaching every level of junior education. She has a politics degree from Royal Holloway College and a PGCE from Roehampton. She breezed into Wimbledon High with boundless energy and a passion for girls’ education. But just one term into her tenure, Covid lockdown brought many of her plans to a grinding halt. Has nonetheless succeeded in thoroughly revamping the school’s curriculum and applying a new broom, both literally and metaphorically. ‘We Marie Kondoed the school,’ she says. ‘We cleaned, paired down, peeled back.
