Young people benefit enormously from taking part in educational visits. In particular, they are given the opportunity to undergo experiences that they may not have previously been offered. Visits help develop young people’s skills, confidence and independence as well as enhancing their learning.
At Walthamstow Academy we believe that it is important for our students to take their learning out of the classroom and see the curriculum that we teach in action, in the real world. Throughout the academic year your child will be invited to attend a range of educational visits that have been chosen and designed to embed our teaching and students’ life skills.
Our educational visits are to the following venues:
- Sporting arenas/events
- National parks
- Religious buildings
- Visits abroad
