Is your child aged between 5 to 9 years? Are you concerned they are falling behind or not challenged enough to reach their full potential?  If so, we invite you to find out about the close-knit and welcoming family that is Wandsworth Prep School.

Wandsworth Prep School is a co-educational independent day school, for children aged 4-11. Graded Outstanding in our latest Ofsted inspection, we pride ourselves on our ability to offer children a highly personalised learning experience designed to instil a love of learning and ensure they have the confidence and skills to cope with the demands of whichever senior school they move on to. The graphs below show how pupils joining us in Key Stage 1 and 2 typically progress in reading, writing and Maths, compared to the national standard. Click on the graphs to read more about the benefits of joining Wandsworth Prep school in Key Stage 1 and 2.











We encourage children to be involved in a range of activities, helping to develop and nurture every child’s strengths and interests. From traditional clubs such as ballet, drama, art or cooking, to additional offerings including lego, coding, golf and gardening, we offer a wide array of extra-curricular activities from Reception to Year 6. Peripatetic music teaching is also available for a wide range of musical instruments, led by our in-house music teachers.

Wandsworth Prep is part of Bellevue Education and is a member of the Independent Schools Association which opens up many opportunities for our children, including interschool competitions and events.

In Years 3 to 6, we sustain our emphasis on breadth and balance, ensuring that children enjoy their learning, whilst being mindful of the necessity to prepare them for the important senior school entrance exams they take in Year 6. Watch our short video to gain an insight into our 11+ preparation.

Taster Day

We recognise the importance of choosing the right school for your child. To support interested parents with this important decision, we warmly invite you to book a taster day for your child. Find out more, here.


Our personalised approach to teaching and learning enables us to offer an academic scholarship programme specifically for children who demonstrate exceptional ability at assessment in English and Maths. Please contact us to find out more.

CNED Programme

Pupils aged between 6 and 11, whose mother tongue is French, have the opportunity to follow both the French and the English curriculum alongside one another. We do this by offering the CNED programme; a well-established programme validated by the French Ministry of Education to provide a French educational standard for students living overseas. Find out more here.

Pupil Performance

From the moment a child joins Wandsworth Prep, the way in which our staff motivate and enthuse them, to the broad and balanced curriculum and specialist teaching, enables that child to start their learning journey. We continuously build on this, ensuring every child achieves their very best as they move through the school to Year 6. The graphs below demonstrate the attainment levels in which pupils typically progress at during Years 3 - 6 for reading, English and maths compared to the national attainment.
