The Curriculum

A broad and well-balanced curriculum is taught by committed teachers. Learning outside the classroom, including a Forest School on-site, and half-termly whole School theme days, e.g. Courage Day, Calculation Day, Community Day, are cornerstones to a creative curriculum.

Games & the Arts

An extensive co-curricular programme encourages the exploration of a diverse range of sporting and artistic interests. Pupils are taught by dedicated sports, art, music and drama specialists.

Pastoral Care

A caring and nurturing School where effort is celebrated and where learning is fun. The kind of School that pupils run into every morning and leave ‘as the best version of themselves – not someone else’s version of what they should be,’ as one parent put it. – The Good Schools Guide 2019.

Recent Scholarships

On average, 19 per cent of leavers gain scholarships, mainly to Walthamstow Hall Senior or Sevenoaks School.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

For over 180 years we have been true to our founding aim to provide an education which is full of opportunity, challenge and possibility. At Walthamstow Hall pupils discover that learning is an active process that enables them to get personally involved; it is not one that just passively happens to them. Pupils recognise that learning is a consequence of thinking. They do not merely pass through a door but are set on a voyage of discovery. We are not promising a polished product, but a profound process. We are not about growing grass that will wither once it faces the real world, but cultivating patterns and disciplines of learning that will last a lifetime.

Outstanding Characteristics

Specialised teaching facilities for young pupils include a science lab, art and DT room, music block and EYFS classrooms. Use of Walthamstow Hall Senior School facilities includes weekly swimming and use of the School theatre for plays and concerts. A ‘Creative Curriculum’, which is enquiry-led and topic-based, runs across the Early Years Foundation stage.
