Walthamstow Academy Enjoys Amazing GCSE Results!

Our students have achieved some excellent results that demonstrate their hard work. These results will mean that many of our students will now be able to take up places in our Sixth Form and we look forward to welcoming them back in September to continue their education at Walthamstow Academy.

We are always encouraging our students to try for the very best and so it is also very pleasing to see a number of students being awarded the new top grade of 9 in English and Maths.

Seeing my friends opening their results was the most amazing moment but when it was my turn, it was quite overwhelming. However, all my worries were washed away when I saw Grade 9.
I had  tried my best and when your teacher says hard work pays off, they mean it.
Thank you.
