The LMA is an excellent resource, though of course, not all school records have survived. when I was looking up the records for St Philips/Archbishop Sumner primary (just over the road from Walnut Tree Walk) there were very few records - it all depends really on whether the school kept them - I believe they were only obliged to keep attendance registers for 3 years after the pupil had left.
The LMA has made available a large number of school registers on Ancestry, and you can get a 14 day free trial for that site (it's quite expensive otherwise) - you can look at transcripts or an original image.
Actually, now I remember they have free Ancestry look-up at the LMA so it's still well worth a visit. Last time I was there I looked up the workhouse register to find my great -nan's admission and dischargeback when she was orphaned.
