Walthamstow School for Girls

Work For Us

Walthamstow School for Girls is a truly inclusive community school with a tradition of academic excellence.  Our motto is “Neglect not the gift that is in thee”.

We are located at the heart of our vibrant, diverse community here in Walthamstow and we are dedicated to securing the best outcomes possible for all our students.  We want each and every girl to gain the skills, qualifications and confidence they need to succeed once they leave us and to make their dreams and ambitions a reality.

We are dedicated to supporting all our staff in a wide variety of Continuing Professional Development internally, in collaboration with our partner schools and on external training courses.  Throughout the year, our staff are encouraged to share best practice and to aspire to and train for progression to middle and senior leadership roles.  To that end, we support a number of staff who are studying for the National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) run by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).

The school site houses excellent modern teaching and learning facilities, complimented by historical Grade II listed buildings and beautiful natural green spaces.  We have a 92 year old Greek Amphitheatre which hosts many of our summer events and celebrations. Staff can access a range of sporting activities to keep fit, including; gym equipment, Zumba, Box Fit and Yoga to name a few. Staff have access to car parking facilities and we have excellent local public transport links following the recent London 2012 Olympics. The school participates in voucher schemes to support the cycle purchases and child care costs.
