Introduction

 

Walthamstow Hall is a day school for girls in Sevenoaks, Kent. Founded in 1838, it is one of the oldest independent girls’ schools in the country, educating pupils in line with the motto Non Palma Sine Pulvere (No reward without effort). [1]

 

Academically, the school strives to provide both breadth and choice, introducing students to relevant subject areas that are delivered by highly-qualified staff. The curriculum, offering everything from MFL and Classics to science and technology, is coupled with optimum-size classes, thus ensuring a valuable intellectual experience that is rooted in a ‘have-a-go’ approach.  

 

Over 50 co-curricular clubs are available, maximising the sense of adventure that pervades school life and facilitates girls’ non-academic successes. The school boasts outstanding facilities to make this possible, including Ship Theatre (with an audience capacity of 200), a modern dance studio and a 25-metre swimming pool. [2]

 

Walthamstow Hall’s community is grounded in trust and mutual respect, thus friendships formed at school are built to last. Well-rounded and competitive, the education on offer allows learning to be an active process that encourages participation and thus cultivates pupils’ intellectual versatility, securing their enthusiastic approach to life as a whole.
