A student-centred vision

Grounded in our vision of being a flourishing, connected learning community, we strive to enable each student to achieve her best, and embrace her individual pathway.

At Walford, our vision for our students sets the direction for the School, while our values provide the guiding principles that govern our journey.

Together, they form the bedrock of our identity, shaping our culture, strategy, and impact on the world.


To develop compassionate and courageous women who live with meaning, purpose and principle.


To be a flourishing, connected learning community that enables each student to achieve her best, her way.

School Motto - Virtute et Veritate 'Moral Courage and Truth'



We are principled people who act with courage, authenticity, and integrity.


We are determined, hardworking agents of our own learning, committed to achieving our best.


We act with respect and compassion, embrace difference, foster inclusion, and contribute to community.


We are curious, open-minded, lifelong learners who see challenges as opportunities to grow.
