"Their education at Great Walstead School has provided an excellent foundation for their academic successes at Brighton College and beyond." Richard Cairns, Headmaster of Brighton College


We have a 100% success rate for all Year 8s gaining entry to the Senior 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.

In the last 12 years, over 235 pupils have left Great Walstead school with Scholarships and Awards.

These awards demonstrate 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, sports 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!
