Wandsworth Preparatory School’s aim is to inspire and challenge children to love learning. The school prides itself on its child-centred approach to teaching and learning, celebrating the individual talents and personalities of every child.

Wandsworth Preparatory School believes that school should be a fun, exciting place where children can learn in a secure environment and be willing to take risks when trying out new ways of learning. How children learn is as important to the school as what they learn.

As Head of Wandsworth Preparatory School, I am incredibly proud to introduce you to our remarkable school.

Our pupils benefit from a first-class holistic education built on strong pastoral care rooted in academic excellence. Our creative curriculum brings learning to life through our engaging, thematic approach. Lessons are interactive and full of memorable experiences that inspire a love of learning, encourage curiosity, and promote independence and collaborative learning skills.

Laura Nike

Head of Wandsworth Prep

At Wandsworth Preparatory School we are passionate in our belief that a happy child is a learning child. From the moment a child walks through our gates, aged four, we place them at the heart of everything we do with an unfailing emphasis on creating the conditions and culture that each child in our care needs in order to thrive and achieve their potential.

  • We nurture our pupils in small groups to recognise and encourage the unique personalities, talents and gifts of every child
  • We ignite in our pupils a passion for learning through outstanding teaching and planning a curriculum based on the needs of our pupils
  • This unique combination enables our pupils to achieve their full potential both in and outside of the classroom

We want children to leave Wandsworth Prep as happy, confident and kind individuals, with the skills required to be independent learners, well-prepared for their next stage in learning with a natural readiness to embrace the challenges of an ever-changing world.
