Introduction

 

Wimbledon High School is an independent day school for girls in Wimbledon, South West London. Member of the GDST, it has educated many eminent journalists, architects and authors. Wimbledon High has a strong academic reputation and is considered a champion of feminism. [1]

The rich selection of facilities on offer includes a swimming pool, a STEAM room, a fully functioning theatre, Science labs and spacious classrooms. Numerous enrichment opportunities and lectures by prominent guest speakers further enhance the school’s provision, facilitating pupils’ intellectual development thanks to the human dimension of the educational approach.
