Welcome to
Wimbledon Common
Preparatory School
a pre-prep school for boys in Wimbledon Village


Mrs Tracey Buck - Headteacher

Welcome to Wimbledon Common Preparatory School, a place where your sons will develop the foundational skills that will set them on their successful school careers.


Boys join WCPS in the September following their fourth birthday. We ask for a report from their nursery school and spend time getting to know your son before we offer a place. You can view our prospectus online or request a printed prospectus.

We hope that this will help us to discover if our school will be a good match for your son and that we believe he will flourish here.
