Give your daughter a head start

Our Mid-Year Reception Program is designed to facilitate a smooth and seamless transition into Reception.

Starting school for the first time marks one of the most defining milestones of your daughter’s life.

At Walford, we understand the significance of this moment, which is why we work closely with families to, not only guide your daughter through this transition, but also create an experience that sets the stage for a lifetime of love for learning.

Our Mid-Year Reception Program has been carefully crafted to give each young girl a head start in developing the essential skills, knowledge and capabilities she will need for an optimal start to her schooling experience.

With the support of Walford’s specialist Junior School staff, your daughter will thrive in a personally tailored curriculum within a warm and nurturing environment, where she is truly known and treasured by the wider Walford community.
