The first ever Walton High Ski trip took place during February half term in the lovely traditional Austrian Ski town of Radstadt, part of the large Ski Amade region. On the departure day, the five staff and 35 students all arrived in school with their ski bags and the long build up was finally over. We were all going skiing and we all couldn’t wait; there was nervous excitement everywhere in the air. At departure time 12.30pm on Friday 10h February, the tour bus was fully packed and we got a lovely send off from the large gathering of parents wanting to wave good bye to their sons and daughters from the front of the school.
On Tuesday 31st January during the Advance Learning Day, a group of 46 Economics students from year 11, 12 and 13 went to visit the Bank of England in Central London. The day started with students having a tour and walk through of the museum where students got to hold a bar of gold, worth £385,000! Two year 11 students; Carl Coleman and Curtis Henry, managed to crack a code within the museum and win a reward!
We have produced a set of guidelines to improve the level of service to all our students at the Yamaha Music Point. We reserve the right to amend the terms and conditions where appropriate.
FEES: Invoices for tuition are sent out in advance of each session. Payment must be made within 14 days. Failure to pay any invoice will automatically cancel any further tuition at the Music Point.
DISCOUNTS: There is a 10% discount for staff who work at MKET schools. Also, if a student signs up for more than one instrument, the first instrument will be invoiced at full price, and any further instruments will have a 10% discount applied. This also applies to more than one sibling signing up for lessons.
WITHDRAWAL FROM TUTION: A student can withdraw from tuition by giving four weeks written notice.
Written notice MUST be sent to the Principal Teacher of the Yamaha Music Point. VERBAL notification cannot be accepted. Termination of invoices and tuition will then take effect at the start of the next session.
CANCELLATION: The school cannot issue creditsfor lessons cancelled by STUDENTS. This is the policy of the Yamaha Music Point and applies to both Group and Individual lessons. Credits are given when a teacher cancels lessons and they are shown on the INVOICE for the NEXT session.
RESPONSIBILITY: The Yamaha Music Point acknowledges its responsibility for the supervision of students during lessons and that the parent is responsible at all other times.
This half term the YR7 and YR8 Rugby teams also played at the annual Milton Keynes MK Schools Tournament held at MKRFC. Both teams played at least four matches in a league based format. Both teams played well and scored plenty of tries with the YR7 team finishing runners up and the YR8 team winning the tournament undefeated.
