Philosophy & Approach

"Walthamstow Hall Junior School educates girls to achieve their full potential by offering them an exceptional range of opportunities.”


  • all individuals are respected and their individuality valued
  • pupils are encouraged to achieve and expectations are high
  • consideration for others and self-discipline are promoted and good behaviour is the norm
  • pupils learn both to lead and to serve and develop a sense of responsibility both within school and in the wider community
  • rewards and sanctions are applied consistently and fairly
  • pupils, staff, governors and parents work in partnership

We aim to provide a broad education, rich in opportunity, in a Christian setting that will foster confidence and prepare girls for challenging and fulfilling lives in the 21st Century.
