School Heritage

From its inception, in 1893, the history of The Study has been one of expansion and continual modernisation.

The Study was founded by Miss Sidford, a governess who taught in the study of a large house in Wimbledon. From these modest beginnings, the growing school moved first to a local church hall and then, in 1903, to purpose built premises in Peek Crescent, now known as Spencer House.

In 1975, the Study became a registered charity with a Board of Governors.

The ever increasing popularity of the school dictated further expansion in 1992 when Wilberforce House, in Camp Road, was acquired and completely refurbished to provide a light, colourful and welcoming environment for our younger girls. We are planning on developing the Wilberforce House site in 2019 - 2020, to modernise and enhance the facilities in order to provide the best possible educational environment for our girls.

Today, we have approximately 320 girls in the school across two sites, with two parallel classes in each year group.
