On Wednesday 9th May, Year 10 Business & Economics students attended Warwick University as part of their Business pathway programme. Students received a talk from various Deutsche Bank Economists covering topics such as the origins of money and the day in a life of an investment banker.

Students then got to take part in a group project to create and design a new local amenity that would aid the local community and develop skills for life. Walton High students won this task and got to present their ideas in front of all other schools!

The day ended with various talks from current Business undergraduate students and a Campus tour of Warwick University providing information on the facilities

Following a play-off final against the winners of Pool A, Shenley Brook End School, which resulted in a 3-2 win, they are now MK Schools YR7 Girls Football Champions 2017/18.

u15 DSC8782Our U15 Rugby team have crowned a fantastic year by winning the Bucks School County Cup at Aylesbury RFC.

The route to the finals saw very convincing wins over local schools, Oakgrove and Lord Grey, followed by a 5-0 win over Akeley Wood in the Semi-Finals, which was played in atrocious weather.

The team to beat in the final was Burnham Grammar.

The first half was a war of attrition with plenty of hard tackles from both sides. With nerves that come naturally with playing in a final, errors were bound to creep in. This lead to a very scrappy first half. Walton High scored the first points of the match with a try from Harrison Reed who actually scored two tries before half time. However, just before the break Burnham Grammar levelled the scores at 12-12.

In the second half, Walton High conceded minutes after the restart. However, in typical fashion, they turned it around with grit and determination and fought back with a quick tap and go from 10m out by Mateen Qureshi to score in the corner. An excellent forwards’ display in the second half saw Walton High dominate the scrums and breakdown enabling Walton High to gain possession and momentum. Three more tries followed in quick succession with Nick Duff, Morgan Reeves and Mateen Qureshi going over the line for scores to seal the match for Walton High. The final score was 34-19.

Just being there in the final was a great achievement in itself. A few years ago, it would have been inconceivable to even dream of such a thing.

Mr Harris has worked with this squad from their days in YR7 and has built them into a very good team indeed. Most of the boys are from YR10, but a few YR9s excelled for their age and made the grade to play.

u15 DSC8591Understandably, the boys were genuinely over the moon to have won. Mr Harris had a very difficult choice to make in deciding who to give “Manager’s Player” to. In the end, he chose Cosimo Pellegrino, who was even more delighted by an impromptu award for this match. Several PE teachers were there to cheer the team on and they also chose him as the “Fans’ Player”.  The Players’ Player accolade went to Nick Duff.

Most of the players in this team not only won the MK Schools Rugby Tournament last year as YR9s, but also entered as two teams in the U15 Tournament this year when they finished both Runners Up and Champions. They certainly are a force to be reckoned with in the area now. Mr Harris’s dedication and the work rate of the boys is to be applauded. WELL DONE ALL!

The boys who played in the County Cup campaign this year were:

Morgan Reeves, Cosimo Pellegrino, Solomon Adepoju, Josh Cosby, Mateen Qureshi, Blake Hart, Tom Duff, Freddie Reynolds, Kamal Amoako, Nick Duff, Harrison Reed, Tom Mawanga, Baraka Dale, Lexus Morgan, Oliver Calvey, Charlie Bell, Daniel Oguara, Jack Stunt, Ajiri Ukeleghe, Jack Miller and Michael Lee.

This is a message the school have since received from a spectating parent:

“It was a privilege and delight to watch Walton High U15 Rugby team win the Buckinghamshire Schools Rugby Championship today.  It was a really tough game, with some boys having played in a cup final for their rugby club yesterday, yet still rising to the occasion and putting a massive effort in for their school.

I believe the final score was 34-19 to Walton High.

I would like to express my deepest congratulations to Mr. Harris and the boys.  Mr. Harris has done an amazing job since starting rugby at Walton High.  This U15 team, 4 years ago, were his and the school’s very first cohort of Rugby players.  Starting from nothing, we have risen to become one of the best schools in Buckinghamshire.  Amazing”.
