Performing Arts Success

Screen Shot 2017 03 20 at 22.53.03There have been many successes over the past few weeks in Music and Performing Arts across MKET.

We have had many students participate in a number of performance categories at the Milton Keynes Festival of Music, Dance and Drama and we were thrilled when a number of our Oliver cast performed ‘Consider Yourself’ and successfully won the Gold Award for Large Musical Theatre Ensemble.   We also celebrated our Year 9 students performing their version of ‘Revoltin’ Children’ from the musical ‘Matilda’ and then winning second place and a silver medal.  The adjudicator praised the students for maintaining Walton High's enviable reputation in the Performing Arts and commented on the obvious value that being part of a performing arts ensemble added to a young person’s experiences.

Hot and Not Bothered

hotnotbothered

A group of Year 11 students recently took part in an initiative during their PE lessons, which was set up through a group called “Hot and Not Bothered”, who are funded by Sport England.

The students had to complete six weeks of activity with an outside instructor. The activities varied form Yoga to Insanity Workouts designed to encourage young girls to be more active and show them a variety of different ways in which they could do this. If students were able to complete five out of six sessions with a positive attitude, they received a FITBIT and a “Hot and Not Bothered!” t-shirt to encourage them to stay active in the future.

As the photo shows, fun was had by all.

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah, THAT’S HOW IT GOES!...

Huge congratulations to everyone involved – it really was great to see so many students of so many ages taking part showcasing their talent, enthusiasm and enjoyment of being on stage.

Thank you to everyone who supported the show – we have loved receiving your messages and we are really glad you enjoyed it and are looking forward to seeing you back at The Venue again soon.

Take a peek at this fascinating video created by our lighting operator, Jacob Grace – capturing the show from behind the scenes…

Brooklands Campus

IMG 0022Monday 31st October 2016 will remain a date of huge significance in the history of Walton High; the Brooklands Campus opened its doors for the first time to students. This £25million state of the art learning environment was finally ready to be occupied by its first cohort of Years 7-9. What had originally been planned as a six week summer holiday of unloading, unpacking and assembling had to be condensed into the October half term. Thanks to an enormous effort by staff and Walton High’s Post-16 students, everything was ready in time.

Although only 3 months have passed, the impact of the high quality education provided is already evident. Everyone has settled in well and the most is being made of the opportunities afforded by the excellent facilities.
