Welcome to Walden School

We expect our students to achieve and we love to celebrate their successes.  

In the senior school classes are small so teacher time and attention are plentiful, and every child is known individually by all of his or her subject staff. We expect pupils to gain at least one grade higher for each subject at GCSE than their record suggested when they joined the school.

At Walden School, your child will find a strong sense of community that unites all members of the school – boarding and day pupils, teaching and non-teaching staff – regardless of age or position. We believe that learning happens most effectively when relationships are based on mutual trust. This supportive environment results in secure, happy students who are able to meet intellectual, creative and physical challenges with confidence throughout their school career.

Individuality is cherished and pupils and staff show respect for the dignity of others.

We welcome children from all religious faiths, as well as those with none. While our assemblies are based on Quaker silent worship, they are inclusive and respect the religious backgrounds of all our pupils.
