What the school says...
Walthamstow Hall educates girls with academic potential to lead confident, challenging and fulfilling lives at school and beyond. The school is a thriving, forward-looking community built on a solid foundation and specialising in educating girls to the highest standard since 1838. Respect for others, a strong sense of community and a pride that comes from sharing a great tradition make Walthamstow Hall an environment in which each girl can flourish, discover and develop her talents and make lifelong friendships. Our students are keen to 'have a go' in all areas of life and as well as succeeding academically often excel in their many extra-curricular interests and activities.
Inspiring teaching, wonderful facilities and the close partnerships which exist between parents, staff and girls lie at the heart of our success. ...Read more
