Walthamstow angling academy

Our angling academy helps us engage with the next generation of customers, and educates young people on their part in society and the environment.

There are ten individual reservoirs that makeup Walthamstow Reservoir, offering fantastic opportunities for budding anglers. Some of the reserves are also Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) as they have rich bird habitat and terrestrial fauna.

The academy can provide activities for groups of all sizes. As well as our classroom-based water engineering challenge, we also offer the opportunity to learn how to fish and can provide tours of the reservoir site.

Angling is recognised as a powerful engagement tool, particularly with those who have shown challenging behaviour in the past.

We can adapt our approach to help you get what you need out of the day.
