Message from the Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Walthamstow Academy. Choosing the right education for your child is an important decision. Parents want the very best for their children and the certainty that they will be encouraged to reach the highest standards possible, gaining the skills, qualifications and confidence to fulfil their dreams and ambitions.

I want our students to be inspired by their achievements and talents - whatever they are. We offer a broad curriculum and an environment for learning which inspires all of our students to try and achieve all the things we might never have thought possible.

Walthamstow Academy is one of a family of academies sponsored by United Learning. It is the largest single sponsor of academies in the UK and has a proven track record in education. United Learning's aim, which we share, is to bring out 'the best in everyone' - students, staff and the wider academy community.

At Walthamstow Academy, we offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which our students feel happy, safe and supported to be able to achieve their best. Since we opened in September 2006, we have begun to develop a school which its students and the people of Walthamstow can be proud to call their own.

The Academy has provided an essential focus point for the local community and is in fact becoming the first choice of school for local families. If you want to be part of making this happen - as a parent, a student or as a member of staff - I hope that what you see on this website will inspire you to get in touch.

I look forward to meeting you.
