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.

Careers Show at Walton High

We are proud to announce another successful careers show at Walton High. Our 2017 show hosted 23 exhibitors representing all different kinds of employers and higher educational pathways. There were stalls promoting a range of pathways, from apprenticeships to graduate schemes and part to full time employment. We had just under 500 visitors attending and many were seen leaving with purple balloons and an array of pastries thanks to Westminster Homecare. We would like to mention that we had exceptional interest from Key Stage 3 and 4 students this year, highlighting that students are starting to think about their career pathways early on.  

We would like to thank our exhibitors and the Walton High catering team for making sure they were fed and watered, and lastly the Post 16 Prefects for giving up their time to man the sign-in desks and give directions.

Please let your teachers or Mr Mason know if there are any employers you would be interested in seeing next time.

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.
