Kelmscott School is a secondary comprehensive school in Walthamstow, East London, UK. The school has approximately 900 pupils aged 11–16. In 2008 the school underwent an £11.2m refurbishment as part of the Building Schools for the Future program.[1] The current headteacher is Mrs Lynnette Parvez.

Kelmscott School serves an ethnically diverse community, with the largest group of students being of Asian Pakistani heritage. Three in every five students speak a first language other than English, of whom over 50 are at an early stage of learning English. One student in six joins the school after the beginning of Year 7. The number of students is average, but there are more boys than girls.
