Frequently Asked Questions

Getting to our New South Wimbledon Centre

Our new Music Centre location is:

Merton Abbey Primary School, High Path, London SW19 2JY.

This lovely new venue is right next door to the new Harris Academy Wimbledon site and between South Wimbledon tube station (4-min walk) and the Tandem Centre (4-min drive).

Due to COVID restrictions, parents/guardians will not be permitted on site.

Drop-Off/Parking:

We kindly request that where possible pupils are dropped-off outside of the school and make their own way in via the pedestrian entrance adjacent to the car park. Follow the path to access the building via the glass door - please look out for staff and signage to direct you.

There is limited on-site parking available on Saturdays and after 6pm on Mondays/Wednesdays.

Parent/Guardian parking is in the playground, accessible via the staff car park gates (please do not park in the staff car park). Additional spaces may be found in the adjacent streets or alternatively at B&Q or Sainsburys nearby.

Please note that the MMF main office will still be based at Harris Academy Morden until August 2021.

Is It COVID-Safe?

We have implemented a comprehensive range of protocols including ventilation, distancing and hygiene measures to ensure the safety of our learning community. Pupils will also be kept in 'bubbles' of no more than 15 in accordance with Government guidelines; this will impact on capacity and rehearsal scheduling.

We will be operating a one-way system inside the building

Pupils (aged 11+) and staff, other than those who are exempt, to wear a face covering at all times whilst on site except for when in a lesson or seated in their designated place for rehearsal.

Percussionists - please remember your sticks and bring along any small items of percussion that you have to help minimise the need for sharing resources.
