All 16 to 19 students, whether studying academic, applied or technical qualifications, should be given the opportunity to take a study programme which reflects their prior attainment, education and career goals.

Study programmes should normally include substantial academic or applied and technical qualifications; non-qualification activity including work experience; and the study of English and maths where students do not hold a GCSE graded A*-C in these subjects.

Study programmes should be focused on progression to the next level of education, a traineeship or apprenticeship, or other employment.

Funding is on a per student, not per qualification basis.

New accountability measures will be introduced from 2016.

Sixth Form teaching is exciting, relevant and interesting with a strong focus on developing advanced study skills. We keep class sizes small, where possible, and take pride in the additional support teachers give students. Learning is individual, enjoyable and co-operative. We are delighted to be able to recruit exceptional teachers with a passion for their subject. Walthamstow Academy Sixth Form is rated in the top 10% of providers nationally for progress across A-Level, AS-level and BTEC (ALPS 2016).
