About Waterside Academy

Waterside Academy is a community school in East London, close to Haggerston overground train station.

Waterside Academy has embarked on a journey to become outstanding. It is being led by Charlotte Whelan and a highly experienced and skilled leadership team drawn from across the Community Schools Trust. Charlotte oversaw the transformation of Forest Gate Community School (Newham) from Requires Improvement to Outstanding in three years. We have the aim of making WA the best school in Hackney and are already making headway as we work towards this goal. We received positive feedback from Ofsted’s recent visit to the school in November 2019 with the key points summarised below:

‘Pupils and staff say that the school is now a different place.’

‘In a short space of time, the new headteacher, trust CEO and senior leaders have created a calm place to learn. Pupils’ behaviour is improving.’

‘Leaders have put in place systems and structures to teach pupils how to behave respectfully. Pupils follow school routines at the start of the day and following break and lunchtimes. This enables lessons to begin in an orderly way.’

‘Leaders and managers are taking effective action to improve behaviour and secure consistently positive attitudes to learning. Safeguarding arrangements are effective.’
