Welcome to the Walthamstow Hall Old Girls' Association

Founded in 1899 the Walthamstow Hall Old Girls' Association (W.O.G.A) is now 115 years young. Our first news sheet was published in 1902 and since that day the Association has gone from strength to strength. Today we have over 1,000 members around the globe and, just as in the early days, act as a source of friendship and support for former pupils of the school.

Becoming President of the Old Girls' Association would never have crossed my mind during my ten mischief-filled years as a boarder at Wally Hall in the 1970s. I was too engrossed in playing lacrosse, scrabbling to get a front-row seat for Thursday night 'Top of the Pops' or roaming the school after dark in search of bread and butter! Life has a habit of coming full-circle though and, after a career in law and raising three boys, I am delighted to find myself President of Walthamstow Hall Old Girls' Association. This is an exciting time for our organisation as we can use today's communication technologies to take our long-established role of keeping former pupils in touch with one another to a whole new level, making Walthamstow Hall Old Girls' Association an organisation to rival the established 'old boy' networks of old!
