Our Vision at Great Walstead School is to inspire all our pupils to achieve their potential in all areas, through the support and dedication of our staff in a caring Christian environment.
A former parent once described Great Walstead as a place of 'mud and love' which goes a long way in characterizing our school. Great Walstead is an independent prep school for girls and boys from Nursery (2 ½) to Year 8 (13) set in more than 260 acres of wonderful Sussex countryside close to the village of Lindfield, neighbouring Haywards Heath. We pride ourselves on our wonderful caring, Christian family atmosphere which does so much to bring out the best in our pupils. A recent OFSTED Inspection declared our children’s enjoyment, achieving and contribution to be Outstanding. It is good to have official recognition of what we know to be true. Visiting parents frequently comment on the energy and enthusiasm of our pupils and staff as they tour classrooms and see activities in action. We have experianced and inspiring staff who always go that extra mile to discover your childre's talents and gifts and develop them. All this is underpinned by our superb facilities, impressive results and distinctive Christian ethos, both of which help us achieve excellence in so many areas. The only way to experiance the unique ethos of Great Walstead is to come and see for yourselves. Please contact us to arrange a visit and discover what makes Walstead such a special place.
