Our latest A-level results are amongst the best in the country. Walthamstow Academy Sixth Form is rated in the top 25% of providers nationally for progress across A-Level and BTEC.

There were excellent results in a number of individual A Level subjects including:

  • 100% of Media grades were A*-B;
  • 75% of English grades were A*-B;
  • 50 % of Chemistry grades were A*-B;

Likewise, in each of the 5 BTEC Diplomas offered at the academy, every single student was awarded a Distinction* (equivalent to A*).

If you want to join our Sixth Form, you will need five or more GCSEs at grade 5/C or above, including English and Maths. We offer a wide range of both vocational skills based BTEC National courses and traditional academic A Levels providing a range of routes to university and careers.

At Walthamstow Academy our aim is to combine academic excellence with outstanding care, guidance and support.

We look forward to welcoming you to a friendly, hard-working Sixth Form whose students have already proved to be excellent role models for the rest of the Academy.
