What the school says...

Walden School aims to realise the potential and talent of all pupils within a friendly but challenging environment, from Nursery to Sixth Form. High standards of teaching and academic attainment are enriched by a broader framework of personal development. At age 11 pupils finish the Prep School well prepared for their transition into the Senior School.
Walden School is one of the top schools in the country to deliver a 'value-added' education, improving achievement between age 11 and GCSE, and onto A Level. The supportive environment within the school results in happy students who succeed academically with internationally recognised qualifications and go on to study at a range of good British universities.

Thank the school

"Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Special Education Needs

The Study Centre aims to develop strategies to improve an individual's study, organisation and thinking skills. Study Centre staff complement and support the work of teachers in the classroom. Your child may benefit from one-to-one teaching, or from support within the classroom from fully qualified learning support assistants; both are designed to ensure equal access to the curriculum. The Study Centre will monitor your child's progress closely and modify support where appropriate. The cost of support will depend on your child's needs. Additional costs will be kept to a minimum and will be discussed during the application process. Walden School is regarded as having particular strength in working with children with dyslexia.
