What to think about when looking at schools
As you may be visiting several schools over this time, we recommend asking the following questions to help you in your decision making:
Observe and speak with students as well as teachers - are they the sort of girls you would like your daughter to have as friends? Are they well-mannered and do they take pride in their school?
Please see our Visit/Contact the School page for directions. We strongly recommend you come by public transport, especially on the Saturday as traffic in central Wimbledon will be busy and parking difficult. We regret that there are no parking facilities on the school site at any time and parking is limited to a few metered bays in the area immediately surrounding the school.
Wimbledon High School is situated in the heart of Wimbledon and very well served by public transport. The station is a few minutes' walk away, serving National Rail, London Underground and Tramlink.
If you are driving to Wimbledon to visit the school, please use one of the two public car parks marked on the map and allow plenty of time. Parking in Mansel Road and surrounding roads is limited to a few metered bays.
We look forward to welcoming you!
Senior School Open Events
Our main Senior School open morning for the year has now passed. Do check back for the 2014 date - it will again be a Saturday in October. It is a great way to see the school: all teachers and students come in on the day and so you can see teaching in action, as well as get involved in some of the activities in the classroom yourselves.
11+ Interviews / 11+ Open Mornings – Autumn term 2013
We run 11+ interview days on Wednesdays through the Autumn Term as we interview all candidates looking to join us in Year 7. These mornings double up as opportunities primarily for Year 5 parents and daughters to tour the school and listen to the Head’s talk. We limit numbers and these tours are now fully booked.
A visit in the early summer term is a good way of having a look around before the autumn rush of trying to attend many schools’ open days. These are open to parents and their daughters (Year 5 or 4 only). The two dates for 2014 will be published before Christmas.
Junior School Open Mornings 2013 / 2014
The September and October Open Morning dates have now passed. We have two further opportunities to view the school, on 26 Feburary and 8 May. Booking will open from January 2014 for the February date.
