“Super-curricular activities are those that take the subjects you study further, beyond that which your teacher has taught you or what you've done for homework”
At Walthamstow Academy Sixth Form, we believe that subject knowledge and subject expertise are essential in securing the best possible university places. In addition to grade requirements, the most effective way to support your university application is to show that you have worked consistently and autonomously outside of the classroom and beyond the A level and BTEC curriculum, and that you have genuine interest in your chosen subject.
When applying to universities and for apprenticeships, students who have completed a range of relevant super-curricular activities are more likely to receive multiple offers or asked to attend interviews.
We work with various organisations such as the Sutton Trust, Kings College K+, Realising Opportunities and Access Aspiration to provide our students with opportunities. Our sixth form students are encouraged to take part in a range of activities that relate to the subjects and/or careers they would like to pursue.
