Donhead is a non-selective independent preparatory day school for boys located in Wimbledon in the London Borough of Merton. It also serves as the main feeder prep school of Wimbledon College, a fellow Jesuit school located across the road. Both schools are under the governance of the Jesuits.
Donhead takes boys aged 4 to 11 after which they often continue their secondary education at the College or at various independent or grammar schools across London. Special reservations are made for boys transferring from the nursery department of its sister school Ursuline Preparatory School.
The building known as Donhead Lodge was built in 1867 and first occupied by a barrister one Freeman Oliver Haynes. Mr Haynes died in 1880 and soon after a Miss Elizabeth Arnold became the owner. In 1902 the house was taken over by Henry Smail and remained in the family's ownership until after the death of Mrs Smail in 1932.
By the early 1930's, Wimbledon College was looking for suitable premises in Wimbledon where the junior classes could migrate to form a preparatory school with its own headmaster and the opportunity to purchase Donhead Lodge came about.
Donhead's first pupils consisted of three classes named Elements, Preparatory and Lower Preparatory and numbered approximately 67 boys in total. They entered the school for the first time at 9:50 on a Monday morning on 5 September 1933 under the guidance of Donhead's first headmaster, Fr. Miller.
In 2011, the school's Rugby Union Under 12A team were the National champions. They beat Blundell's in the final with tries from Chris Morris and Joshua Tiernan. Chris Morris (Fullback) and Oscar Hale (Second Row) went on to The London Oratory School.
