The Curriculum

A broad and well-balanced curriculum taught by committed teachers. Lots of learning outside the classroom, including in the onsite Forest School. Whole school themed learning days e.g., ‘Community Day’, ‘Courage Day’ are cornerstones of a creative curriculum.

Games & the Arts

Pupils are taught by dedicated Sports, Art, Music, Dance and Drama specialists. Sports curriculum includes netball, cricket and year-round weekly swimming lessons for all pupils from Reception to Year 6. An extensive co-curricular programme encourages participation in a diverse range of activities from Lego and Chess Clubs to Football.

Pastoral Care

Strong and effective pastoral systems and open communication underpins a supportive and harmonious community. The school’s size ensures that all pupils are known and seen. Students play an active role as peer mentors.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

‘Walthamstow Hall offers not only tremendous scope for discovering who you could be but also staff with an enthusiastic commitment to accompanying that voyage of discovery, staff who see each pupil as an individual capable of shining in their own distinct way. Pupils here have never felt the needs to constrain themselves to a ‘box’ early on but have relished in participating in all the school has to offer.’

Outstanding Characteristics

Children can join Walthamstow Hall from their second birthday. The Nursery and Pre-School offer care from 7.15am – 6.15pm, available for 50 weeks a year. Specialised teaching facilities for young pupils include a science lab, art and DT room and music block. The Junior School has all the benefits of being the ‘younger sister’ to Walthamstow Hall Senior School, for example use of the pool, theatre and shared practice, but has its own standalone site conveniently located for commuting parents within walking distance of Sevenoaks station.
