Wimbledon High School


Wimbledon High School

Academically excellent, Wimbledon High School has, for many years, been regarded as a place for extremely bright girls. The head, Ms Hanbury has introduced a new curriculum with a two-week timetable that includes ‘enrichment’ afternoons and out-of-class activities like global economy, journalism, dissection, Italian and ballroom dancing.

Wimbledon High School also gained extremely positive press when Ms Hanbury introduced a ‘failure week’ in 2013, to teach the usually high flying girls what it was like to lose. “For high-achieving girls especially, for whom fear of failure can be crippling, this is vitally important”.
