Why Girls?


Sub Menu

Within the walls of Wimbledon High, girls have been educated since 1880.

Wimbledon's High's first Headmistress was principled, pioneering and bold in articulating the radical vision that "women have minds as well worth educating as men's". We are proud to share that history and proud to be part of the GDST; we know how girls tick and how to get the best out of them. 

What does that mean in practice? Underlying everything is our warm and caring community, where girls can grow and become independent while supporting each other. They truly can be themselves, away from the social pressures of a media-driven world. They are encouraged to find and use their voices - to stand up for what they believe in and to help the causes of others.

Academically, it means playing to girls' strengths, in our style of teaching, in the structure of our school day (and length of lessons) and in choosing to be an A Level school.
