Admission Policy consultation

In order to ensure that arrangements meet the needs of the local area, admission authorities have a duty to consult with relevant parents and the local community on their proposed admission arrangements, which include the overall procedure, practices, criteria and supplementary information to be used in deciding on the allocation of school places.


To this end the Governing Body of Walthamstow Academy and Sixth Form is consulting on its proposed admission arrangements for September 2018.


The Consultation with regards to changes to the Admissions Policy for admission to Walthamstow Academy in September 2018 is commencing as of today 14 November 2016, and will conclude at midnight on 23 December 2016.


We are consulting on the Academy’s admission arrangements. These arrangements are for students who will be starting secondary school in September 2018, or requesting admission to the Academy between September 2018 and July 2019. Waltham Forest Admissions services are responsible for offering or refusing places at the Academy.


We would welcome your views on the proposed arrangements. There are two proposed changes to the oversubscription criteria, both of which are to be considered separately by the Governing Body. You can see the proposed changes by clicking here to download the letter.  You are invited to give feedback by emailing Consultation@walthamstow-academy.org   For a full list of active Walthamstow Academy and United Learning policies, including the Admissions Policy, please click here.

WA Choir sings at the Four Nations Rugby

As part of United Learning, the national schools group which Walthamstow Academy is part of, 400 children and their teachers performed the national anthem to kick off the RFL Four Nations rugby match at London’s Olympic Park venue – including sixteen students in years 7 - 10 from Walthamstow Academy. The pupils sang in the CHANT Choir, run by music education provider Chant Productions, which has been working with United Learning schools to give young people a platform for live performances.


Aged 11- 15, the young singers from Walthamstow Academy enjoyed a number of workshops in school with Chant Productions’ professional opera singers to prepare them for the Four Nations performance. They learnt the national anthem and a Brit Pop medley, along with stagecraft techniques to help build their confidence in performing live in front of such a large audience.
