Secondary Transfer

Children transfer on from West Wimbledon Primary School to a range of secondary schools, although a small number of schools account more the large majority of leaver destinations.  The top two schools, Raynes Park and Rutlish (boys), accounted for nearly 50% of leavers.  Merton schools account for just over 50% of destinations, and the top 4 schools (including Coombe Boys and Coombe Girls) account for 75% of children’s destinations.  In 2020, 11% of children gained places at selective grammar schools (12% in 2019)
