Welcome to The Study

Entry is at reception for girls aged 4+

The Study is a long established, independent prep school for girls aged four to eleven and our two beautiful school buildings nestle in the heart of Wimbledon Common and Village.

We nurture each and every girls’ unique personality and strengths, ensuring they flourish as individuals. Our 2021 leavers have been offered a total of 55 scholarships and awards at some of the best senior schools in the country.

The School is a vibrant and stimulating environment where learning is enhanced by an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, workshops and trips, with opportunities to support the local community as well as charitable causes close to the girls’ hearts.

Our academic, sporting and creative successes are impressive, but what we take most pride in are our girls – compassionate, happy, well-rounded and confident – who will take with them long lasting friendships and a wealth of happy memories from their time with us.

We are proud to be non-selective at reception and places are offered on the basis of a ballot. It is still possible to register for our waiting list for entry to our reception 2021 class and we are pleased to be accepting registrations for 2022 entry and beyond.

“The family feel of a village school and the results and facilities of a leading London prep – the very best of both worlds.” Vicky Ellis, Head teacher

Creative Curriculum

The Study is a creative school – from the way in which the core academic subjects are taught to the very real emphasis we place on nurturing creative talent and an appreciation of the arts in all our girls. We offer an array of instrumental music lessons, weekly ballet for pre-prep girls and drama in our new and impressive Performing Arts Centre.

Beyond the classroom

Through the many after school clubs we offer, we help to instill a growth mindset in our girls, and they are able to ‘have a go’ at anything that might appeal to them. From jazz club to yoga, fencing or street dance. Our clubs help develop important attributes such as commitment, co-operation and initiative, preparing our girls for the next step on their journey.

Pastoral Care

We have a clear focus on academic achievement at The Study, but we believe the education we offer means so much more than the 11+ results. Through a nurturing environment and individual care and development, we ensure that each and every girl is able to flourish. We champion the importance of emotional wellbeing, kindness, friendship and respect for others.
