Wednesday 26 April saw the annual Celebration of the Performing Arts across the Milton Keynes Education Trust. In front of a warm supportive audience the four Trust schools, New Chapter, Heronsgate, Kents Hill and Walton High produced a spectacular show, truly celebrating the work of Disney.
Kents Hill produced a memorable and spine tingling performance of Little Mermaid Medley, Heronsgate roused us with energy and vive in performances from Mary Poppins whist New Chapter produced a roaring rendition of the Lion King.
Walton High gave performances with the Pop Choir giving a Disney Medley and Post 16 singing Shadowlands and the Rock Challenge cast delivering their act from their recent success. There were many memorable solos from Aladdin to 101 Dalmatians.
The evening really celebrated the talents of the pupils and students from across the Trust and ended with a grand finale of Life’s a Happy Song together with some Disney Magic. Our thanks to all the staff for their hard work in putting on the tremendous show.
A brand new event is about to take place and you might just want to be there to see it! Walton High's first ever LipSync Battle takes place at the Brooklands campus on 18 May.

Walton High Post 16 Media students were lucky enough to be asked by David Kelly to create a promotional film for his charity, A Way With Pain. The class collaborated to produce the film and we relished the chance to work with actress, Sian Reeves, who provided the voiceover for the media commission.
We used the school’s facilities, such as The Venue, lighting desk and the recording studio to create the film and soundtrack. Then we mixed the components together for the final edit. Our media class screened the film to David and Sian; the feedback received was hugely positive and the video can be located on the charity website www.awaywithpain.co.uk.
This was a fantastic experience for our class; having the chance to apply what we have learned in a truly vocational experience was brilliant and we learnt a lot about how to work with a professional client in the media industry.
Walton High students were very fortunate to receive a visit from England and Notts County Captain Laura Bassett before the Easter break. Laura was in Milton Keynes as England Ladies faced Austria at MK Dons’ Stadium MK on the 10th April, a game they won 3-0.
Laura helped to lead a coaching session alongside our own keen footballer Miss South. The students included members of the U13’s team, who this season won the local round of the EFL girls cup and then represented the MK Dons in getting to the quarter finals of the Regional EFL Girls Cup. She then answered questions from the girls and made time for photographs and autograph signing.
