Getting to our South Wimbledon Music Centre and parking

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

Our flagship Music Centre is at Merton Abbey Primary School, next to Harris Academy Wimbledon and between South Wimbledon tube station (4-min walk) and the Tandem Centre (4-min drive).


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 weekday evenings, and there is a Blue Badge bay in the Staff Car Park. Please click here for more information on parking.

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 the nearby B&Q or Sainsburys (if you're planning on doing some shopping).

What will my child need to bring to rehearsals?

Everyone who uses sheet music - a pencil

Brass players  - a towel for their water keys

Guitarists - a footrest

Percussionists - drum sticks

NB. On Saturday mornings, the Friends of Merton's Young Musicians run a pop-up cafe so your child may want to bring some money for a snack/drink.
