Walthamstow Hall

“Thriving girls’ day school in leafy Sevenoaks, which produces confident young women with an adventurous spirit and strong academic results. The school’s core values of respect, integrity, aspiration, community and individuality are very much in evidence at this friendly school where girls throw themselves in and thrive on the many opportunities offered to them. ”

The Good Schools Guide, 2019

Founded in 1838 in Walthamstow (hence the name) and moving to Sevenoaks in 1878, Walthamstow Hall is one of the oldest girls’ schools in the country and the oldest in Kent but as Muddy Stilettos found when they visited, “That’s not to say that it’s stuffy or outdated, far from it. With a brand shiny new Sixth Form Centre and a new head, Miss Ferro, who joined in January 2018, the school’s very much experiencing a new lease of life.”

Walthamstow Hall has a firm bedrock as an academic school providing academic and extensive co-curricular opportunity for able girls. This was verified by the ISI rating the School as ‘Excellent’ in all areas in June 2019. Headmistress, Miss Stephanie Ferro, defines her vision for the School as moving from this excellence to inspirational with a mission to develop young women of integrity equipped to live purposeful lives.

The School’s values of Respect, Integrity, Aspiration, Community and Individuality run through all elements of School life, ‘like a stick of rock’.

Bursaries & Scholarships

Since its foundation as a charity in 1838 Walthamstow Hall has maintained a strong ethos of making a Walthamstow Hall education accessible to girls with potential whatever their circumstances.

The Senior School offers means-tested bursaries to enable girls from families facing financial limitations to benefit from a Walthamstow Hall education. Bursary applications are examined on a case-by-case basis and offered on a sliding scale dependent on the value of a family’s income and assets, Founders’ bursaries, offering virtually 100% of tuition fees are available for families in the greatest need. Parents whose daughters are in receipt of a Founder’s bursary are asked to pay a nominal fee of £50 per term.

Requests for financial support, in the form of a means-tested bursary usually fall into two categories:

  • New applicants to the School where a place has been offered but parents/guardians are unable to fund the tuition fees
  • Existing pupils where a change in parents’/guardians’ circumstances has resulted in difficulty in meeting tuition fees and may result in the child being withdrawn partway through a stage of education.

Applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis and awarded on a sliding scale up to a value of 100%. The level of award will be determined by the family’s gross income, the value of their property, including any overseas’ property, and other assets and their outgoings.
