The Curriculum

Offers unusual breadth, choice and flexibility. Lively teaching from highly qualified, enthusiastic specialists to optimum-sized groups. Students study GCSE and A-level.

Games & the Arts

All pupils are encouraged to get involved. There are many opportunities to participate in a rich panoply of artistic, musical, dramatic and sporting activities. Students compete strongly at national and county level in sport and gain places at the National Youth Theatre and Orchestra. National titles currently held in badminton and swimming.

Pastoral Care

A supportive and harmonious community where all individuals are respected and contribute. Belief that strong pastoral systems underpin academic progress and that emotional, personal and intellectual development go hand in hand. The personal development of pupils is excellent. They are confident and articulate young people, with a well-developed sense of right and wrong and a high degree of emotional maturity.

University Places

Typically over 95 per cent of students go to university, over 90 per cent to their first choice and over 75 per cent to Russell Group. Higher level apprenticeships also taken up at Deloitte and IBM.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

For over 180 years we have been true to our founding aim to provide an education that 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, not one that just passively happens to them. Students 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

Inspiring teaching, wonderful facilities, close partnerships between parents, staff and pupils and a shared sense of pride in our history and achievements lie at the heart of our success.
