Radical traditional

Private School Education

As a parent and Head, I believe few schools can match Walhampton’s stunning setting, which allows children to be children whilst we prepare them for the unknown challenges and opportunities in the world of tomorrow.


Walhampton seeks to be an innovator, continually refining how we offer an outstanding all-round education for Generation Alpha.

We are determined to individually develop, nurture and value each child into a confident young person.  Walhampton gives children the space, support and encouragement to explore their passions.  By the time they leave, they not only go on to the most prestigious senior schools, locally and nationally, but we also ensure they are creative, resilient, problem solvers who are ready for life in a rapidly changing world.

Our children embody traditional values, and yet they are radical because each individual discovers their own brilliance at their own pace. We want our pupils to find their voice, spoken and written, and develop the strength of character to be involved in society from the earliest age, understanding that the real impact is felt when those traditional values combine with radicalism.

Our stunning setting by the sea, distinctive Christian ethos, innovative teaching and a love of nature and the outdoors, makes this a place where children truly experience joy. We work so hard to ensure every child looks back at their time here and says, "I really loved that school".

We look forward to welcoming you to Walhampton soon.

“This co-ed school brims with happiness and is friendly rather than imposing… Walhampton more than pulls its weight as a top prep ensuring pupils head to their first-choice senior school.”

Country Life

“Many prep-school surroundings are spectacular, but Walhampton has an edge.”

The Week

"Walhampton pupils can’t fail to be inspired.”


"The ethos of Walhampton is very much one of living life to the full.”
