Wimbledon College

About this Organisation

Wimbledon College was founded in 1892 by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) to provide education and preparation for university entrance at a time when Catholic children were barred from such opportunities. Today, the College is a voluntary aided comprehensive secondary school for boys ages 11 to 18. The school is in the London Borough of Merton and remains in the trusteeship of the Society of Jesus.

The College currently has close to 1300 boys on roll including 270 in the Sixth Form. There are seven teaching groups in each year (known as lines in Jesuit schools) at Key Stage 3, with eight in Key Stage 4.

We were graded as Good in our most recent Ofsted inspection in 2017. Examination results are excellent and consistently well above national averages, full details of examination results are available on our website.

The teaching staff is well established with a small annual turnover. All teachers are specialists in their subjects and there is a CPD programme supporting teachers at all stages of their career. Teaching Support Assistants are assigned to departments and provide cover for absent staff as well as administration support for the department.

The school operates a Sixth Form partnership with the neighbouring Ursuline High School with pupils able to attend classes on both sites. Classes in the Sixth Form are coeducational. The Sixth form offers a wide range of A Level and Btec Level 3 courses as well as a one year Level 2 course. The majority of our Year 11 [Syntax] boys continue into Sixth Form at the College and in recent years all of our pupils have moved into education, employment or training. Post A Level the majority of our pupils go on to university with over 40% going to Russell Group universities.
