Extra Curricular

We offer an exciting extra-curricular programme at Walthamstow Academy, which includes a wide-ranging enrichment programme. Students throughout the Academy have opportunities to take part in a variety of activities enabling them to learn from different people and try things they never thought possible. Through these, students develop high order teamwork and leadership skills. 

During the current circumstances, we are offering a different type of extra-curricular programme for students to engage in. This includes activities online or in person, at home or in school; all of which enrich their school experience and builds cultural capital.

These will update each fortnight. Please see below for more details.
