Waltham School has played a vital role in the village since it was first opened. Unfortunately I know absolutely nothing about its history. So I’m hoping someone may be able to shed a little light on my ignorance. Please get in touch if you have any information or photos.

I’m also hoping the school may want to get involved in this website. I’d love to include videos of some of our older residents reminiscing their life in Waltham. And I think it would be wonderful if we could get children to ask the questions.

So if you’re a parent, governor or teacher – and you think it might be a project the children would enjoy – just use the contact form to get in touch.

  1. According to the “Post Office Directory of Leicestershire and Rutlandshire 1855” ‘A National School in the Elizabethan style was erected in 1845’… a Mr. Edmund Ball is listed as the Headmaster at that time.
    I understand that Revd. Gabriel Gillett M.A. funded the new school.

    No doubt someone connected with the school can provide more history.
