Curriculum and Qualifications

Walthamstow Academy has a powerful, intellectualised and rigorous curriculum. Students are challenged to be the best they can be, whatever their starting point, and as a result, we see continuous improvement across the Key Stages.

 

At the end of Year 8, students make their curriculum choices, meaning that from Year 9 they are studying subjects they are particularly passionate and excited about, and for more time across the week. This leads to greater engagement, greater progress and greater success in the lead up to GCSE.

 

In Year 7 students study English, Maths, Science, Computing, French, Spanish, Music, Art, Drama, RE, Geography, History, Design Technology, Food Technology and PE. They study PSHRE during form time.

 

In Year 8 students study English, Maths, Science, Computing, French, Spanish, Music, Art, Drama, RE, Geography, History, Business Studies, Design Technology, Food Technology and PE. They study PSHRE during form time.
