Former Ursuline Preparatory School on the market

the former all-girls preparatory school and nursery has had a presence in Wimbledon since around 1892

Global property consultancy, Knight Frank, has been instructed by the trustees of the former Ursuline Preparatory School in Wimbledon to sell the school property, with a guide price of offers in excess £7m.

The freehold property is offered with vacant possession and presents an incredibly-rare opportunity for buyers, either as a turnkey educational facility or with regard to its potential for alternative uses or development, subject to obtaining necessary consents.

Last operated as a predominantly all-girls preparatory school and nursery that has had a presence in Wimbledon since around 1892, the property features an attractive Victorian villa as a focal point, along with several other buildings including St Angela’s, a modern facility which was constructed in 2015 to house the early years and school’s offices.

Outside there is a multi-use games area and gardens.

The property extends to approximately 21,609sq ft of accommodation across the 1.139-acre site – all situated in one of south west London’s most-desirable residential areas.

“The sale of the Ursuline Preparatory School on The Downs in Wimbledon presents a rare opportunity for an owner operator or investor in the educational sector to acquire this unique asset, equally it will undoubtedly appeal to other end users or developers given its scale and location in one of London’s most-sought-after postcodes”, said Emma Cleugh, head of Education and charities at Knight Frank.

Situated in a Conservation area on The Downs, roughly mid-way between The Ridgway and Worple Road, the property is around a 15-minute walk from Wimbledon Village and the leafy green spaces of Wimbledon Common and further benefits from excellent transport links at Wimbledon station, as well as major road routes, including the A3 and A24, which are both less than a mile away.
