About Ursuline Preparatory School

At The Ursuline Preparatory School, we believe children should be "all-rounders", benefitting from the academic rigour and challenge the curriculum provides, but also taking advantage of the opportunities our wide extra-cirricular programme allows. Equal to these are life skills: respect for others, good manners, kindness and self-confidence. Our web-site gives a flavour of the range of experiences we have to offer, and a general insight into school life here at The Ursuline Preparatory School. A personal guided tour can be arranged to suit family commitments, and a list of our Open Days is on our web-site and via Attain Magazine. Reading through the words and pictures of any literatures gives the reader an impression of our school, but there is no substitute for a visit to see us in action. We do run a Bursary Scheme and are happy to talk to any families considering applying. Please feel free to call our Admissions Department on 0208 947 0859 or email admissions@wups.co.uk, and we will furnish you with a full prospectus and an appointment to come and meet us.


The fees for September 2016 are £2,020 for part time Nursery or £3,300 for a full time place in any year group.  Fees are reviewed annually in the Spring Term by the Governing Body and then relate to the following academic year.  From September 2016 a sibling discount of £150 will apply.
