My name is Janet Gardner and I am the Principal and CEO of Waltham Forest College. I am delighted you have decided Waltham Forest College as the place you want to ‘Create Your Future’ and we aim to help each student succeed in their aspirations and progression into the next step in their careers. 

The experience of being a WFC student will be something that you will remember for the rest of your life, as you will be treated as an adult and our staff will work with you as a co-creator of your own learning. You will find the learning experience rewarding and enriching and be part of the culture of academic excellence with aspirational standards aimed at securing the best outcomes for you.

Developing character is hugely important to us too, we want our students to be strong of mind, will and heart and outside of lessons, you will be part of a vibrant community with opportunities to engage in a wide range of social activities and events to suit your individual needs. 

Whilst COVID-19 continues to push our boundaries and transforms our reality, we will continue to invest in your learning experience, and we have a strong track record in supporting students to achieve and pride ourselves on the success of our alumni.

I am excited about your future and looking forward to meeting you in person and learning more about your experience of being part of the #TeamFOREST community.

Janet Gardner
Principal & CEO
