The Admissions Process
The Ursuline Preparatory School, Wimbledon, is a Roman Catholic school that also welcomes children of all religion and none. We are a strictly non-selective school and places are offered on a date of registration basis, with those registering earliest being offered first. Siblings are given priority. Most children enter at either Nursery or Reception Class stage, but occasional places are available in other years through the usual coming and going in the local area.
After the Pre-School Class, the Ursuline Prep is a school for girls only. Entry to the Reception Class takes place in the September after your daughter’s 4th birthday.
We expect all our Pre-School girls to transition to the Reception class, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Applications can be made at any time and places are released on a date of registration basis.
Places after Reception Class are given on the availability of places and allocate according to the date of registration.
Full details of our admission arrangements can be found in our Admission Policy, available on the School Policies page.
Our daughter has been at Ursuline Prep since Reception and is now in Year 6. She has thrived in this wonderfully nurturing school. We are really pleased with her academic success, and she got into the secondary school of our choice. The sporting and musical provision are excellent with great success in cross school fixtures and exams.
The school allows girls to succeed through love, care, and attention, without the need for a high-pressure environment.
We thoroughly recommend this school to anyone looking for a setting that will bring out the best of your daughter.
Mr and Mrs E.
Aside from the strong academic offering, the School’s community is what sets it apart for us. The parent body is engaged, friendly and active. The teachers really care and go out of their way to help, and the children form strong, lasting friendships.
When we have faced issues outside of school – a house move or a bereavement etc. – the staff and parent body have always done as much as they can to make it easier for us and make sure our daughters are fully supported. I really appreciate that strong community feel and I hope to give back in similar ways where we can.
