Wimbledon Common Preparatory School (WCPS) is a preparatory school for boys aged 5–7 in Wimbledon, London.


WCPS was founded in 1919 at 45 High Street to educate the sons of the local gentry living in Wimbledon Village. It was a main feeder prep school for King's College School, also located in Wimbledon. It moved to Homefield Road and then, in 1957, to a property across the street from KCS. In 2006 it was bought by KCS and became its prep department.[1] Boys transfer to the KCS Junior School after age 7 (Year 2).
