GCSE Exam Results 2021

Congratulations to all our students across Year 11 for their GCSE awards – I am so proud of every single one of them! It has been fantastic to see the progress they have made throughout their five years here and the qualifications they have received today showcase their ongoing hard work and determination.

In what has been an incredibly challenging year, our students and staff have worked together superbly to secure these outcomes and ensure our young people have everything they need to reach their goals. We are very much looking forward to welcoming many of our Year 11s back into our Sixth Form in September

We are so proud of every single one of our students. They have worked so hard this year, in exceptional circumstances, and we have seen how determined they have been to show what they are capable of. They have been so dedicated and have really pushed themselves to do their very best.

‘I want to say a massive thank you to my teachers who consistently went above and beyond to support me both educationally and pastorally. I always knew that whatever I was going through that there would be someone there for me. Thank you!’

Aisha Mukadam is off to study Medicine at UCL. Aisha said:

I am really happy with my results. I have always dreamed of going into medicine, and now for it to finally be confirmed is amazing. I definitely would not have been able to achieve this without the help and support from the wonderful WA staff. I have been here since year 7 and have really benefitted from all they have to offer. I feel like the teachers went out of their way to make everyone comfortable and confident in their subjects, as well as in general school life. Especially all the extra help needed during the very trying Covid times. I was surprised at how well we adapted to the new way of learning, but I am happy that we got though it together!’

Ivy Walker is off to study International Relations at Kings College, London. Ivy said:

‘It’s been an amazing experience being at Walthamstow Academy from Year 7 to Year 13. The past two years have been difficult, but I’ve been able to get though it thanks to the amazing support from the school. I would not have gotten the results I did without the unconditional support from the school. I am really proud of everyone in this journey alongside me as everyone has worked incredibly hard. I’m excited to move on to university and am looking forward to seeing the amazing things Walthamstow Academy will achieve.’




Rahma Zaid is off to King’s to study International Relations. Rahma said:

I can’t believe my 7 year journey at this amazing school has come to an end.  I have loved every minute and will look back with no regrets. I always get told, “you love this place too much and will probably end up coming back to work here”; perhaps that’s because this school is like home to me now. This place has been the key to my success, my future and who I am now, and for that I will never forget the amazing teachers and people who have supported me on this journey. I have learnt that hard work and resilience will get you anything especially the grades you want. If you put your mind to something, you can achieve anything you want no matter what. I am proud to say that I attended Walthamstow academy and can’t wait to see what the future holds! This school really does want to see the “best in everyone”.  Even though I will miss this place I can’t wait to go off to university and start a new chapter!’

I hope that whoever is reading this can believe in themselves and strive for their best as Walthamstow Academy really does bring out the ‘best in everyone’

Walthamstow Academy has been a great place to study, learn and develop as a person’
