We believe children learn best when they’re happy. That’s why everything we do is designed to stimulate your child’s development by giving them the space to explore, learn and play.

Don’t just take our word for it though, watch our ‘School Life’ video featuring our pupils and teachers from our Prep School to find out why they love being at Great Walstead.
