Walthamstow Montessori School opened in April 2001 and welcomes boys and girls aged 2-6 years of age.
We are situated in a pleasant part of North East London with children attending from a very wide area. Our children, families and staff are diverse and fully reflect multi-cultural London. Our children benefit from very small class sizes throughout the school.
The school is open from 8am-5:45pm.
2-year-olds can attend for mornings or for a whole school day. 3-year-olds and over attend for full days only. We also offer an Early Risers’ Club and Tea Timers’ Club which the children love.
Our Upper School and Lower School are situated in separate buildings less than a five minute walk from each other. They are easily accessed from Central Walthamstow and we have excellent transport links with local bus stops very close by. The A406 is just a couple of minutes away.
We have large classroom spaces within the school which all benefit from lots of natural light as well as designated areas for ICT. We offer individual music tuition and even have our own little library. We have lovely outdoor spaces to play and explore. We have large indoor PE spaces as well as use of swimming, athletic and tennis facilities.
Class teachers are highly experienced and enthusiastic. They work closely to support your child’s welfare and development. We have excellent specialist staff members who have been chosen for their expertise in their field. Please see our staff list for full details. We pride ourselves on our communication with parents and provide a warm and welcoming environment for all our families.
Children at WMS have attended a variety of different schools after their time with us, including; local state schools, faith schools, academically selective schools as well as other independent schools. We are very proud to say that several of our children have been offered scholarships at their subsequent school.
Destinations of leavers over the last few years have included:
Walthamstow School for Girls, Forest School, Woodford County High School for Girls, The Latymer School, St Aubyns, Queenswood, Queen Elizabeth School for Boys, Henrietta Barnett School, Davenent, The Brit School, Highams Park, Heathcote, Palmers Green High School for Girls.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school and hope our website tells you a little more about what we can offer you and your child.
