Welcome to Walthamstow Academy

We are very proud of our Sixth Form which opened in September 2008 and is now thriving with over 100 students both from the Academy and elsewhere. Our latest A/S results are amongst the best in the country. 28% of students achieved an A-A*

If you want to join our Sixth Form, you will need five or more GCSEs at grade C or above, including English and Maths. We offer a wide range of both vocational skills based BTEC National courses and traditional academic A Levels providing a range of routes to university and careers.

At Walthamstow Academy our aim is to combine academic excellence with outstanding care, guidance and support.

We look forward to welcoming you to a friendly, hard-working Sixth Form whose students have already proved to be excellent role models for the rest of the Academy.

All of our students study for four AS-Levels in Year 12 or a Level 3 BTEC and AS-Level combination. In addition to this they follow an independent study programme where they register for 8 hours of additional study time in our dedicated Sixth Form Study Centre.


About us

Students who have just finished their A-levels have gone on to study degrees at top Russell universities such as Kings, Leeds, Warwick, and Bristol. We expect to have students accepted into Oxford and Cambridge this year.

Subjects being studied are varied; International Relations, Business management, Law, Psychology, Engineering, Digital Arts, Sports Science and Pharmaceutical Science.


Facilities available

The common room is a place for the Sixth Form to relax away from the rest of school and has a microwave, fridge and kettle to make your own food.
