The youngsters, in reception and year one, took part in a number of activities throughout the year including a dress-up-day, a Christmas fair and most recently a Summer Fete on Friday, July 4.
The youngsters presented a representative of GOSH with a cheque in assembley on Tuesday, July 8.
The school opened in 2012 with just a reception class and is growing each year. In September the number of pupils will double when a new year three class is opened.
Bridget Saul, acting Headteacher of Wandsworth Prep School, said: “Not only are we very proud of the amount we’ve raised but we’ve been really impressed by the way the children and parents have risen to the challenge of fundraising.

“They have all been really enthusiastic and come up with ideas that have been great fun to roll out with a real sense of community.”
