Giving your child a bright future

Destination schools Sussex

Great Walstead School has provided an excellent foundation for academic successes at Brighton College and beyond.

Richard Cairns, Headmaster of Brighton College


We have a 100% success rate for all Year 8's gaining entry to the senior destination school of their choice! Great Walstead School continues to have an excellent record of children going to a wide range of senior schools both locally and further afield.

Pupils also go onto achieve scholarships at a variety of schools, demonstrating the breadth of the education here at Great Walstead. Pupils leaving us are all-rounders in the best sense. In addition to academic work, good manners, excellence in music, drama, art, sport and ICT are all vital to a well rounded child growing into early adulthood. We ensure that children receive the best preparation possible for their senior schools and beyond!
