Social Sciences

“It’s not rocket science. It’s social science- the science of understanding people’s needs and their unique relationship with art, literature, history, music, work, philosophy, community, technology and psychology. The act of design is structuring and creating that balance.” – Clement Mok

The Social sciences department at Walthamstow Academy teaches a range of subjects that enables pupils to relate to the world that we live in and to understand different cultures and societies. Throughout this, students develop skills that prepare them for the wider world of education and work.
