Dear Parents,

Wednesday 24 May is the Year 9 Parents’ Consultation at Walnut Tree and Year 8 Parents’ Consultation at Brooklands.

As there will be GCSE exams in the Sports Hall until 3.15 pm, appointments for the consultation will begin at 3.45pm.  This also means that students will NOT finish school early on that Wednesday but will stay in school and  go to lessons.  Session 5 on that day will be 80 minutes long and will be the lesson timetabled for Week A, Monday Session 2.  Year 11 students will be on study leave and so are not affected by this change.

Students will finish school at the normal Wednesday time of 3pm.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at both Rock Challenge at the Milton Keynes Theatre and Spring @TheVenue: Goes to the Movies at the end of last term.

Once again we are so proud of the number of students who participate in these performances and are always delighted to see the confidence, enthusiasm and talent of our young people.

At Rock Challenge students and staff were inspired by a number of the entries and how every school explored Dance and Performance in a variety of ways.   The support and camaraderie between the competing schools really was excellent and embodied the spirit of the Be Your Best Foundation.  We are excited to start preparing next year’s entry.  Students were thrilled to win three awards: these were for  Concept;  Entertainment;   and Costuming Character and once again would like to congratulate everyone involved.

Ex-student, Carrie Mancini, signs for West Ham Ladies

cmanciniAfter completing her GCSEs at Walton High in June last year, Carrie Mancini was offered a place at the EDSV Football Academy at Oaklands College in St Albans.

Carrie is a residential student at the college Monday to Friday and comes home to Milton Keynes at weekends where she has continued to play for Woburn & Wavendon Ladies. As captain, Carrie has led the team to top of the league, unbeaten so far this season.

She has trained hard with the Academy, alongside studying for a Level 3 National Diploma in Sports Development Coaching and Fitness.

Carrie and her EDSV team mates have just been crowned League Champions of the Category 1 College League.

It is now time for Carrie to move onwards and upwards; she has been offered a place with West Ham Ladies, where she is training twice a week and played her debut match on Sunday 19 March 2017.

Carrie will continue with EDSV and her studies at Oaklands College next year with her ultimate aim of becoming a professional footballer in the UK or in the USA.

Well done Carrie; we are following your career with interest.

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.
