Students are today celebrating their A Level results and taking up places at some of the country’s top universities. 39% of results were awarded A*-B and 70% A*-C thus ensuring students are able to continue to access some of the country’s top degree courses.
I am very pleased for all those students who are celebrating today and going on to their universities of choice. Each year we continue to build links with some of the country’s best universities and it is particularly pleasing to see students going on to study subjects such as Medicine and Law.
Talking to the students today , it is lovely to share their excitement about their futures and to hear from them how big a difference attending Walthamstow Academy has made to their aspirations and ambitions for their lives.

“First of all I want to say thank you to all my teachers and my parents for being there for me in crucial times, and I’m very grateful for Walthamstow Academy as I wouldn’t be where I am today because of them. Now I’m heading for a new chapter in my life, hoping for more challenges and adventures.
I was supported by my teachers to not give up, I have worked hard and now I am going to study Spanish and Business at Queen Mary University, so the key is to never give up”
