Universities & Secondary Schools
All of our partnerships are bespoke to the individual university to ensure we offer students the level of support and training appropriate to the needs of the institution.
Perseid School works closely with local secondary schools The Ursuline, Kings College School Wimbledon and Wimbledon High School, providing opportunities for students and Perseid pupils to learn from one another.
During my time at WHS I chose to volunteer with Perseid School, working with children with different sensory needs. I always learnt something new – how best to communicate with the children, how the brilliant staff organised activities specific to each child, and how calm they were. I also learnt a lot about myself. It was such an enriching experience that I chose Perseid again the following year and for the last few years at university, I’ve continued to volunteer locally. I think it will always be an important part of my life.Wimbledon High School Alumni and Perseid School Volunteer
