Admissions

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. 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.

We understand that choosing the right school for your son can seem like a daunting process and as it is such an important decision, we aim to make it as easy a journey as possible.

WCPS is selective from Reception upwards. Registrations are accepted from birth, as soon as the birth certificate is available. 

Occasional places arise from time to time in the older year groups. Parents should contact the School Office for current details of availability. Selection for places in classes from Reception upwards is based on a child’s potential to thrive in our School environment, which is established through an assessment session, as well as a report from their nursery or current school.

Boys registered for entry after 5 years of age (i.e into Year 1 and above) are invited to an informal interview and to complete some written papers. Once more, we ask for a report from his previous school as we seek to ensure WCPS will be a positive experience for your son.

All boys entering WCPS will be preparing for entry to their future schools at age 7+.

Open Mornings

We hold an Open Morning once every term when prospective parents are welcome to visit the school and meet the Head Teacher.

Currently, to help ensure the safety of the community, and following government guidelines, we are hosting Virtual Open events. Learn more about the exciting life and opportunities at Wimbledon Common Prep School. Meet the Head, Deputy Head and take the opportunity to get your questions answered.

We have a virtual tour that can be accessed by clicking the link on the right hand side of the page.

We plan to recommence open mornings from Autumn 2021.
