Welcome to The Ursuline Preparatory School, Wimbledon

"The quality of the pupils’ achievements and learning is excellent. Achievements are particularly notable in literacy, mathematics and science. The pupils’ success is also promoted by excellent teaching and their exemplary attitudes to learning, which contribute well to their progress. The pupils develop highly effectively in their knowledge, understanding and skills across a broad range of subjects and activities."
(Independent Schools Inspectorate - June 2014)

A very warm welcome from the Headmistress

Choosing your child’s first school is an important part of a parent’s responsibility, choosing an independent school is another part of the process. At The Ursuline Preparatory School we pride ourselves on being, first and foremost a friendly, family school.

Our aim is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity of the best possible start to their educational career. To this end the majority of the children who are educated at The Ursuline Preparatory School begin in our Nursery.

Every girl is encouraged to achieve her personal best in the classroom, but she is also encouraged to achieve in other aspects of school life too. All the pupils in our non-selective school enjoy the benefits of our large site with its top class facilities.

Alongside the academic rigour The Ursuline Preparatory School provides, I believe the girls benefit from the broad curriculum on offer; allowing pupils to participate and achieve in sporting activities, develop their computing skills, drama performance and art and design. In addition there is a plethora of extra curricular activities girls can participate in either before school, at lunchtime and after school. The well attended After School Care Scheme is available for all pupils.

Our children and staff share a real sense of purpose in following the pioneering principles of our Foundress, St Angela Merici. In keeping with our motto, Serviam we seek to show care, concern and consideration for others, strive to achieve our personal best, look to the future with confidence and are keen to make a difference in the world.

Looking through the words and pictures of this website gives you a good impression of the school, but it is no substitute for a visit to see us as a working school. Please do feel free to telephone the school to arrange a visit or attend one of our open events. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome.

I look forward to meeting you.

Anne Farnish

Headmistress
