Welcome Miss Ferro

1 January 2018

At Walthamstow Hall, Sevenoaks we are seeing in the New Year by welcoming our new Headmistress, Miss Stephanie Ferro.

Miss Ferro is only the ninth Headmistress to take the Walthamstow Hall helm in its 180 year history.

Like her predecessors, Mrs Milner and Mrs Lang, Miss Ferro is an alumna of St Anne's College, Oxford University, and brings 25 years of experience to her new role, having taught and led pastoral and academic teams at a number of highly prestigious girls' schools including Wimbledon High (Deputy Head, Pastoral), Lady Eleanor Holles (Senior Assistant Headmistress) and Redland High School (Headmistress). She takes up her post fresh from a term's sabbatical, having enjoyed hiking in Europe, working as a consultant for a primary school, and brushing up her Italian.

Speaking of her new post Miss Ferro said, "I have found everything about Walthamstow Hall to be inviting. The emblem of the ship may seem an enigma in leafy Sevenoaks but this school has at its heart a commitment to 'journey'. My very first tour revealed not only the strong academic foundations of the past and the energetic excellence of the present, but students who are purposeful, who take pleasure in being part of a vibrant learning community, and an outstanding teaching staff who encourage each girl in their own personal voyages of discovery. I am really looking forward to embarking on our journey together and a future full of exciting possibilities."
