Walthamstow Hall is a selective, academic, day school for girls in the heart of Sevenoaks. It was founded in 1838 as an inter-denominational boarding school for the daughters of Christian missionaries and retains its broadly Christian ethos. It has always been an aim of the school to promote an intelligent understanding of the Christian faith and the school welcomes girls of all faiths. The school enjoys a fine setting with extensive views of the North Downs and Weald. Our friendly and talented staff are at the heart of our success.
The School has a new state-of-the-Art £5m+ Sixth Form Centre, which was opened in December 2017.
There is regular capital investment in ICT development and there is a clear commitment to the professional development of all staff. Facilities were described as ‘outstanding’ in the recent inspection.
Miss Stephanie Ferro, the Headmistress, took up her post in January 2018 from The Lady Eleanor Holles School, having worked in Senior Leadership in a number of distinguished schools including Wimbledon High School and Redland High School.
There are approximately 600 pupils in the school 3 - 18. The Junior School (3 - 11 years) is on a separate site. The majority of girls from our Junior School join us at 11+, along with pupils from 20 or so other feeder schools locally. At 11+ there is a three form entry, going to four forms in Year 9. We also have entry at 13+ and 16+, and retention into Sixth Form is strong.
The school encourages high standards in academic work and personal relationships at all levels.
Walthamstow Hall has its own enhanced salary scale based on Df E scales. Accommodation may be available.
