About the employer

Independent Day School for girls aged 3-18 years of age.

At Walthamstow Hall, Sevenoaks for more than 180 years we have been true to our founding aim, which is to provide an education for girls which is full of opportunity, challenge and possibility.

We believe in a true understanding of the root meaning of the word education, from the Latin verb educo: I lead forth, I raise up. Not, I cram full of facts or I make to jump through hoops. At Walthamstow Hall your daughter will discover that learning is an active process which enables her to get personally involved, not one which just passively happens to her. She will recognise that learning is a consequence of thinking. She will not merely pass through a door, but be set on a voyage of discovery. We are not promising a polished product, but a profound process. We are not about growing grass which will wither once it faces the real world, but cultivating patterns and disciplines of learning that will last a lifetime.
