Autumn @ The Venue

autumnatthevenuenovemberWhat a great way to start the half term holidays… a trip around the world!

Yes - Autumn @ The Venue saw Performing Arts students take our audience around the world visiting places such as Africa, America, Vietnam and France.

It was great to see so many students taking part – for many it was their first time on stage.   The audience was entertained with a number of extra-ordinary performances including our brand new Brooklands choir ‘Voice It’, Year 8 students demonstrating their African drumming skills, a sneak preview of our Shakespeare’s Festival entry, the Jazz Band and our fantastic Oliver cast performing Consider Yourself.    It was so lovely to see The Venue completely packed out celebrating and enjoying the many talents of our wonderful students.

As always, a big thank you goes to parents for their support and we look forward to seeing you all at Christmas @ The Venue   on Thursday 15 December.  Tickets on sale from The Venue Box Office soon.

Walton High French exchange to Besançon, France

french2016 11 09 at 23.03.32From 11 – 1 9 October, a small group of Year 10, 11 and 12 students went on the very first Walton High French exchange to Besançon, France. What a great experience! The first exchange between two schools is always difficult but with the students’ enthusiasm and the teachers’ support on both the French and English sides, the first exchange between Walton High and Lycée Pergaud was a success. We had some great experiences in the Franche-Comté region - from lessons at school to visiting ancient citadels on hills.  We were given a wonderful opportunity to have a real taste of French life.

nable2016octMany congratulations to Nicole Abel (YR8) who recently took part in a National Figure Skating competition in Oxford finishing in third place - just three points behind the gold medallist.

She performed a routine to Nero’s “Two Steps From Hell” and was very pleased with her bronze medal which she described as “pretty good”!

Well done Nicole.

Spanish Exchange between Walton High and Agustinos León, Spain

IMG 3020Our third Spanish exchange programme at WH has been the most successful so far. This is what we had hoped this experience would become when we started it in June 2014. It’s thanks to the dedication of parents and students in both countries that has made this programme what it is today. An opportunity to spend time with exchange partners has led to a new approach and motivation to learn languages, enabling students in both countries to use their classroom knowledge in real-life settings.

Walton High @ Brooklands Update

It was an exciting time for some of the Brooklands students who have formed a project group to help with the design of the new café. Last week a student from each of the Brooklands classes visited the new school site to look at the café layout and discuss their ideas.  The next phase will involve the students meeting three different companies to convey their ideas and thoughts regarding the design of the café.
