As once upon a time it was said:
“With knowledge comes wisdom” and we just follow that saying.
It is the aim of LWA to:
- deliver to its learners an affordable educational experience of high quality.
- support an approach to education which is in harmony with the best traditions
- provide educational opportunities in line with the needs and wishes of the Academy’s constituency.
- integrate the Academy with the life of the wider community.
CODE OF ETHICS
The Academy exists primarily for its students who have a right to expect that all staff will be welcoming, and will maintain a high level of professionalism in the service they provide.
LWA trusts its employees to embody the principles in their everyday transactions. It stands for the view that all persons have equal value, and therefore they deserve to be treated justly, and accorded respect regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, age or disability. LWA wishes to celebrate the wisdom and the diverse forms of expression brought by staff and students alike from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.
The Academy expects colleagues to recognise that it takes constant effort to maintain the good health of a community. It is thus vital for all to show maintain loyalty to each other and to students, though this will not obscure the need for mutual accountability. Among other things this involves maintaining a high level of confidentiality when the situation demands.
The Academy recognises that communities prosper most when members are given room to be themselves to express their faith and respect. The Academy therefore encourages colleagues to have personal and professional interests beyond the demands of community life.
MISSION AND VISION STATEMENT
To provide “An Exciting Learning Community”, where students can work with their tutors to develop their own learning programmes to realise their individual potential and spiritual growth.
The London Waterloo Academy mission is to help learners achieve their career goals, cultivate lifelong learning, and promote respect for diversity in a global community.
The location is a big advantage for The Academy, as it’s situated in heart of London and students will have lots of opportunities to entertain themselves while studying. Our doors are open for everybody and new students are very welcome.
We are based in one of the most beautiful and historic places of London – Waterloo. Waterloo was a marshy area known for its picturesque cottages and entertainments like pleasure gardens and circuses. Nowadays the area is mostly known for the enormous dome of the BFI IMAX, which has been a Waterloo landmark since it opened in 1999. Another attraction is The London Eye. The area is includes the National Theatre, Tate Modern, London Aquarium and lively Southbank. In addition to this the area boasts a diverse number of cafes and restaurants providing cuisines from around the world.
We are conveniently located next to Waterloo mainline and underground stations, allowing students easy access to LWA and also allowing them to explore London.
