What says..

Those keen to secure a place at top independents and local grammars are in the right place. Don’t be fooled by Maltman’s non-selective entry criteria – results here are stellar, with a record 85 per cent qualification rate most years in the Bucks 11+ transfer test. But although Maltman’s undoubtedly pins its flag to the academic mast, with over 100 clubs and activities on offer each week, the girls are unlikely to emerge simply as swots, with strings to their bow likely to include coding, yoga and...

What the school says...

A message from the Headmistress, Mrs Walker: "We offer a kind and nurturing environment where our small classes and dedicated staff mean that your daughter is known as an individual and will feel supported, inspired and encouraged to achieve her very best. Founded in 1918 to provide a unique educational experience for girls, we are proud of our School’s rich heritage. We continue today to be utterly committed to providing a forward thinking all-girls education, ensuring each child in our care not only achieves academic success, but is enabled to develop her character, self-confidence and initiative too.

Our large classrooms, spacious campus and fantastic facilities mean that your daughter will be able to achieve “excellence with a sense of fun”, learning and playing in beautiful surroundings and able to thoroughly enjoy her prep school years. Not only this, but in these unprecedented times, where home learning has been an integral part of what we offer our pupils, at Maltman’s Green we have seen how important it is to provide an evolving, innovative learning environment where our girls have ubiquitous access to technology and are equipped with the skills required to become independent learners.

I believe that an excellent education builds pupils’ self-belief, fosters a growth mind-set and develops that all-important emotional resilience. It is important to celebrate effort and not just the final result so that our children can feel free to try new things without fear of failure. Each girl is given every opportunity to find her passions and unlock her talents. We are proud of our strong track record at 11+, with our girls moving onto top senior schools in both the independent and state sectors. Our lastest results show an 84% qualification rate in the Bucks Secondary Transfer Test (11+).

Our girls are happy, confident, sociable and outward looking. I am proud of the breadth of our dynamic extra-curricular and clubs programme, which means that each child’s character is developed as they enjoy challenge beyond the classroom in sport, music and drama.

It is my privilege to be the Headmistress of this fantastic School. Please come and visit and get to know us better. I look forward to meeting with you and exploring how we can work together to give your daughter the best possible start."

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2020, Jill Walker. From a family of teachers but had an unusual entry into teaching herself. Following her degree in nursing studies (King’s College, London), she worked as an HIV nurse, before a stint in Kenya with her husband led to her becoming the housemistress of the boarding school attended by her sons. PGCE in Bedfordshire on return to the UK and then cut her educational teeth teaching science at a Milton Keynes comprehensive, before becoming deputy head of Glendower Prep School in London, then head of St Nicholas Prep in Kensington for three years. When the top job at Maltman’s came up she ‘couldn’t resist applying’ as she had ‘always had (her) eye on the school’. Also has a master’s in leadership and management (University of Bedfordshire).

Special Education Needs

The new post of Head of Learning support was created in September 2006. The current post-holder is a qualified educational psychologist who works with a team including a literacy support teacher and a number of assistants. Support is provided for children with physical disabilities and conditions such a dyslexia as well as to girls who need help in consolidating or revisiting certain concepts and aspects of their work. IEP's (individual educational plans) are set up and reviewed in consultation with parents and pupils so that we all work towards the same goals and share strategies. We are keen to be as inclusive as possible. 09-09
