Great Walstead is a thriving, ambitious Prep School and if you are looking for a school with a difference, we are it! There is a uniqueness about Great Walstead which you can find out more about on our website, from our literature and, of course, by visiting us.

As a Prep School we prepare all our children for their senior school education.

The school has an outstanding record of guiding pupils into their first choice entry of senior school and each year many scholarships are awarded to our leavers (including 11+ scholarships).

We take great pride in our reputation and recognise that this is built on the commitment and skills of our staff. The success of the school and the well-being of staff and its pupils depend very largely on co-operation, trust and respect between us.
