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.
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.
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.

What students are saying
For me flexibility was the most important aspect a language class could have offered, mainly due to my strict working hours. However, at WA I found not only flexibility but also a great team, with a friendly learning environment. Many thanks to WA staff.
I decided to enrol to a Web Design course and to get a new job. I came across an education establishment – London Waterloo Academy and I have spoken to a teacher who gave me a all information regarding this course.
At LWA I gained new skills and new experience which will help me to get a new job.
I would recommend this course to everyone who is interested in the Web Design. London Waterloo Academy is the best place to learn and take your carrier to the next level.
I just want to say to London Waterloo Academy: ‘Thank you for all your support to boost my career`
I have found this course very informative and interesting, and the range of topics covered was excellent. Before starting the course I was not aware of what goes into being cabin crew, but this course was an eye-opener into everything that you would need to know. The tutor was very good in every class and was always there to help if there was anything we were not sure about. The training day at Virgin Atlantic was an added bonus to the course and was a really great opportunity to get a feel of how much training you would need to go through. We also had a chance to take part in some evacuation processes, which was fun! Overall, I think it is worth taking part in the course if cabin crew is a career you want to pursue, as you have the benefit of already having inside knowledge when it comes to applying for jobs.
