Ursuline School Wimbledon Up for Sale

Posted by UK Property Forums on 16th April 2024 -


Knight Frank has been instructed by The Trustees of the former Ursuline Preparatory School in Wimbledon to sell their school property, with a guide price of offers in excess £7 million.

 The freehold property offered with vacant possession 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 around1892, 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. Outdoor there is a multi-use games area and gardens.

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

 Emma Cleugh, head of education & charities Knight Frank said;

“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.”

 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 (rail and tube) links at Wimbledon station, as well as major road routes including the A3 and A24 which are both less than a mile away.

 The guide price is offers in excess £7 million and a date for informal tenders will be set in due course.
