Waldegrave is an oversubscribed secondary school in the Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Our successful School Direct teacher training programme is well established and our partnerships with Roehampton University and St Mary’s ensure our trainees have a first class experience whilst training to teach.
As the lead school for the Waldegrave Training Alliance (WTA) we are able to offer placements in all 11 of the Richmond upon Thames secondary schools, all of which are Good or Outstanding.
Waldegrave School is an 11-18 school. If you book for a school experience day with us you will see that we set high standards of behaviour and have high expectations of all of our students. We are proud of the excellent teachers we have who ensure our students reach their full potential and enjoy school. Ofsted reported in 2018 that Waldegrave is an outstanding school. Our examination results are excellent and reflect the work of committed staff and students. This success has placed the school on the Sunday Times Parent Power list for many years and in 2016 we were named Comprehensive School of the Year.
Waldegrave School has much more to offer than examination results. Our teachers are subject experts. They create opportunities that are many and varied and include the taught curriculum and wider enrichment experience to develop the whole child.
