  • 9 hrs ago: #BeInspiring Year 1 and 2 had an exciting visit from a rescue parrot called Pipoca who belongs to Bee's grandmother. We learnt all about what they eat, how to look after them and we also used a microscope to look closely at their feathers!🦜🌴 https://t.co/Qb6zdI3ANk
  • 2 days ago: #BeInspiring Today was Move Up Morning for all the year groups at Wandsworth Prep. All the children got to meet their new teacher/s ready for September. Followed by a session with the @MsBallooniverse lady. She made all sorts of animals including a monkey and an octopus. 🐵🐙 https://t.co/iA2ri9DhYQ
  • 3 days ago: #BeKind Year 1 and 2 were joined virtually by @wwf to teach us about the Rainforest. The children learnt more about the layers of the rainforest and what animals can be found there as well as the resources that they can get from the rainforest. 🦎🐸🕸🐛 https://t.co/IbBU7MXJ17
  • 6 days ago: #BeInspiring Years 5 and 6 certainly learnt about how to reason and some pupils demonstrated a real passion for the law today. Fran Gresty, a WPS parent and magistrate, delivered a Magistrates in the Community workshop, which was fantastic and insightful. https://t.co/XCzZ8cQBKn
  • 21 Jun: #BeInspiring Years 5 and 6 visited @kewgardens to study cacti and desert biomes as part of their termly Project on Deserts and Oceans. They were extremely lucky to have wonderfully warm weather, which enhanced their experience of a desert climate. https://t.co/7pQRseHObh

Welcome to Wandsworth Preparatory School

We have a simple, but strong belief here at WPS - that happy children achieve more. Positivity permeates everything we do. It enables our children to achieve great results, but more importantly it sketches out a roadmap to future successes and happiness.

The secret? Making learning fun, instilling a growth mindset from the minute children walk in the door and engendering a positive, can-do attitude from both staff and children. We are a school where curiosity is celebrated and independence encouraged.

The need to nurture positivity both informs and directs our educational ethos. We offer strong, inspirational foundations in English and Maths and combine this with innovative interdisciplinary project-based teaching. Joining up subjects under one topic umbrella really brings learning to life, as it is experienced simultaneously through the lenses of history, geography, drama, design, technology, science and even Forest School.

We are a school of individuals, rather than a homogenous whole and believe in maximising pupils' potential - personally, academically and intellectually. We are proud of our excellent academic results with each child fulfilling their potential and Wandsworth Prep children go onto the best secondary schools in the area.

From a practical point of view we are co-educational and non-selective in Reception, with classes from Reception to Year 6. We have a reputation for employing talented and passionate teaching staff. We occupy an enviable position right on the edge of Wandsworth Common and we are proud to work in close partnership with our parents.

From an emotional point of view (and choosing a school is often as much about heart as head) we would simply invite you to come and visit us and see for yourselves that happy children really can and do achieve more.

Jo Fife
Headteacher

Year 4 Pupil

"Not only has my son made excellent progress in both English and Maths but I also love that he spends time learning outside in the Forest. I truly believe that Forest School contributes to his general good health and well-being."

Parent

"Wandsworth Prep provides a fantastic curriculum which makes the children very enthusiastic about learning. We were very impressed with the end of term delivery of the projects and to see the active engagement of the children. Forest School is a definite positive as the children love being outdoors and learning at the same time."
