In Humanutopia, their aim was to make us feel comfortable, confident and proud of who we are.  We had experienced many different exercises throughout the day which allowed us to work with our peers.  The day was calm and enjoyable, it was a day where people informed others as to why they act a certain way, letting their peers understand what they go through in and out of school.  The day was a huge success and individuals finally got to speak out and let their year group know that everybody is different and we should all be treated respectfully.  The year 10 were very grateful for their visit.

World Book Month

To end a month long celebration of reading starting on World Book Day on March 23rd, Walthamstow Academy students received free books to celebrate the anniversary of Shakespeare's death and World Book Night. But as with everything involving the English Department, free books don't mean 'free' books. To gain the free book (donated by the World Book Night charity, each student had to answer a challenging literary question from their English teachers! Needless to say over 270 students met the challenge and received a book. Happy World Book Night to everyone. #iamareader


London Chamber Orchestra Workshop

As part of our ongoing Music Junction project, Walthamstow Academy musicians had their penultimate rehearsal yesterday with the London Chamber Orchestra.

They rehearsed a specially commissioned piece by esteemed composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad in preparation for the final concert at Cadogan Hall on Friday 6 May. Yesterday gave them the opportunity to compose their own ideas which have now been included in the overall work. 

As well as our own students, we played host to students from Bancroft’s School in Woodford, Lammas School in Leyton and from the Waltham Forest Music Service.



London Youth Games

Year 7 & 8 girls have been working tirelessly with our Saracens coach on a Monday after school, to develop their rugby knowledge and skills. After defeating all the other schools in the borough to become borough champions they were then asked to go on to represent Waltham Forest in the London Youth Games.



The girls were outstanding representatives of Waltham Forest and of course Walthamstow Academy. The showed great determination and worked fantastically as a team. The girls showed great promise, just lacking a experience and are passionate about developing on their current success next season.
