Wimbledon Chase Primary School is a primary school located on Merton Hall Road in Wimbledon, London, England. It educates boys and girls aged 3 to 11. The school also houses the Acorn Nursery which caters for very young children.
Wimbledon Chase was founded in 1907 as a county school for girls, but it became Wimbledon Chase Middle School in the 1960s when the Merton LEA was transitioning into the three-tier system. The upper age was later reduced to 11 when the LEA reverted to the two-tier system.

Wimbledon Chase is admired for its extensive grounds which consist of two large fields, one catering for a 200m running track, tennis courts, and many wildlife and nature areas. The school itself currently has two forms per year, but in September 2008 a third form was added in reception classes which could mean the need to expand the school onto its playing fields. Some local parents have opposed the motion, which could be a one off decision, but as the school is heavily oversubscribed it may have no choice. As of the 2011/2012 academic year there are now three forms in reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
