Celebrating Our End of Year Success

On leaving Walthamstow Academy at the end of Year 13, Amjad Butt, our Head Student last year, said: 

The past 7 years at Walthamstow Academy have been a rewarding investment in my journey toward a successful future. I would never have attained these grades and a place at university if it weren't for the amazing teachers who have taught me over the years. Although my final 2 years in Sixth Form were brought to an unprecedented end, they have been vital for my outcome. I feel that I have left a legacy to be proud of at Walthamstow Academy, and could not have asked for anything more during my time here. It is without a doubt that I say, the harder you work, the easier it is to achieve your goals. Never forget: stay hungry to succeed, but always stay humble when you do.

And Folakemi Omoyinmi, our Deputy Head Student said:

Wow. I've been at Walthamstow Academy for 7 years. At the end of these 7 years I am pleased to say I have obtained a place to study Psychology at my dream university. This wouldn't have been anywhere near as possible without the endless support from my teachers and the staff here at Walthamstow Academy. I wasn't always the best student especially from year 7-9, however my teachers never ever gave up on me. For that, I will always, always, remain grateful 

My advice to younger years is to always make sure you work hard with your end goal in mind. By working with your end goal in mind, this will keep you motivated even during the most difficult times. Being motivated is key to educational success because if you don't want it for yourself, then nobody else can make you want it. Make sure to use your teachers because they are there to help and support you. Lastly, when revising or doing homework always make sure you plan around your revision rather than fitting it in to a busy day. By planning other activities around your revision, this makes revision a priority rather than something that is done only if you have time. Always remember Hard work and dedication pays off. I wish you all the best in your studies. 

Independent Study Centre

All of our students study for three A Levels or a Level 3 BTEC and A 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.
