  • 2 All Through Schools (1 has Academy or Free School Status)

Head Teachers within the borough have worked collaboratively to create a directory of strengths within Waltham Forest.

The directory is to be used as a support reference guide to match needs with an outline of where support is available.

Head Teachers can access the directory and contact schools directly to establish if their needs can be met by working collaboratively with that school. The directory is a working document and CPD and training opportunities that schools wish to share can be added to it. However, please note that the directory is not quality assured.

You can search the schools alphabetically on the links below.
