Post 16 students at Walton High are once again celebrating very successful results in academic and vocational courses.
The majority of grades awarded at A Level were A*-B with an impressive 25% of the A Levels awarded being A*-A grades. Students have achieved remarkable success across a range of academic qualifications. Subjects where more than half their students gained the highest grades were Business Studies, Economics, English Literature, Geography, Mathematics, Spanish, French and Philosophy and Ethics.
In particular, students did exceptionally well in Spanish with all students achieving an A* or A grade.
Students’ performance in vocational courses continues to be excellent with over half the grades awarded being Distinction* or Distinction. This demonstrates the continued dedication of these students to their studies.
We are extremely proud that, yet again, many students will be taking up offers at the country’s highest ranked universities. Anthony Nevin’s A*AA results see him going to the University of Birmingham to study Economics. Joining him will be Jessica Barnes (AAA) also taking Economics. Walton High will be similarly well represented at Loughborough University with Elliot Haigh (A*AB) reading Natural Sciences and Scott Foreman (AAB) Economics. Kate Newby (A*AA) will be going to Exeter to read Geography and Grace Woodman (A*ABC) will study Law at Surrey. Rhys MacCarter (AAA) and Ellie Renson (A*AB) will both study Psychology at Warwick and Liverpool respectively. Both Anna Dickerson (A*A*AA) and Alexander Baggaley will be studying Medicine with Alex attending Newcastle. Simran Dehal (A*AB) and Clare Folkes (AAB) will both be attending the University of Nottingham; Simran to study Architecture and Clare to read Law.
Students who pursued a vocational pathway are also celebrating success with Macy Brown achieving D*DDD and Emma Cook D*DDM. Molly Chapman (D*DD) will go to Bath to study Sport and Social Science and Chloe Albon (DDDD) will read Communication and Media Studies at Loughborough.
Equally successful are a number of students whose efforts have won them sought after employment opportunities, including Jacob Grace (DDDD) who has been appointed as a Production Engineer at the SFL Group and Tenisha Tagoe (DDM) who will work as a Software Developer for HM Civil Service.
