What says..

When the school was set up it was serious about equipping girls to follow in their parents' footsteps and become missionaries; they needed to be adventurous, resourceful and brave and much of this spirit lives on in the present school... ‘Girls do well here and get involved in everything, although a very ambitious girl might need a bigger environment’... There are a number of county netball, lacrosse and hockey players; the curling team are Kent champions.

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.
