Welcome to Wimbledon High Junior School
There’s a dragon loose in the classroom! Who left the door of the cage open? When did the egg hatch??
Life in our Junior School has often been full of such excitement since we introduced our new creative curriculum. Year 1, in this case, were embarking on a term’s learning, integrating science, arts, history, geography under the ‘turrets and tiaras’ theme. Can we measure the dragon as it grows? What are myths and what is fact? Capturing their imagination, the children’s natural creativity is tapped, their confidence grows, their writing becomes full of elaborate description. This, alongside teaching core skills of numeracy and literacy, brings outstanding academic achievement, and, just as importantly, a joy of learning that we hope will be with them for life.
An education here brings the opportunity for music, dance, sports and a whole host of enriching extra-curricular activities. Take a look around our website to find out more and do come and visit us. A selective school, we assess girls for 4+ and 7+ entry and will be accepting applications for 2014 entry until Friday 4 October 2013.
