Celebrating Eco Day

What a brilliant way to start this year's Eco Day. There was plenty of curiosity from across our year groups as we talked, shared and listened to how we can all help to save our planet. As part of our Eco Day to launch our Carbon Zero pledge, we welcomed author Mattea Pauc of Re-Educating Earthlings plus entomologist Dr George McGavin.

There is no doubt that Walhampton is a school with green thumbs. With many eco-initiatives that have superseded the requirements for the ‘Green Flag Status’ it is clear that Walhampton cares deeply for the environment.

A letter from our new Head to 2021

Dear 2021 I’m so glad you’re here! Your older brother, 2020, was an oppressive one. Whilst he highlighted just how important community is, he was perplexing and unpredictable. You never knew what was coming next with him.

Outdoor Learning

When you think of a school classroom, you’ll probably picture four walls, chairs and desks. But what if a classroom had none of that? Just trees and foliage, lakes and fields, open sky for a ceiling, and learning materials strewn around on the woodland floor. Now imagine how much fun that would be for any enquiring young mind.

Preparing your children for reception

Every year we look forward to welcoming our Reception classes into school in September. For some it’s just a hop and a skip across the corridor from our Kindergarten classroom. For others it’s their first experience of Walhampton.

Pre-Prep getting it right

Few things are more precious – or wondrous to behold - than the early years of a child’s development. The friends they make. The talents they reveal. The questions they ask. The adventures they enjoy.
