Upstage Sessions: Please note there will be no sessions until September 2014.
And for students collecting their GCSE results this morning, there was plenty to celebrate. 78% of students gained one or more A*/A grade or equivalent. A remarkable 22 students achieved 10 or more A* or A grades. ‘I’ve beaten my brother!’ was one student’s first thought and many students rushed immediately to share the good news with some very nervous parents.
Post-16 students at Walton High are celebrating their outstanding achievements, with thirty-three students gaining the equivalent of 3 or more A*/A grades.
Amongst the highest performing A level students were Anand Savjani (3 A* 1A) Ashna Makwana, Jonathan Shine and Cathy Sun (3A*), Chloe Boseley (2A* 1A), Peter Neale (1A* 3A), Ellen Foley-Williams (1A* 2A), Muhammad Ikram (1A* 2A, 1B), Imogen Bambrough Stimson (4A) and Josh Atkinson (Distinction*, 2A, 1B).
This school year has seen some great sporting achievements, both inside and outside of school, from a broad range of students. One of the biggest achievements is Walton High's year 7 and 8 girls’ football team. Over the years we have made it to many semi finals and some finals with the boys’ teams but the girls were the first football team from Walton High to win the county cup. The team breezed through the group stages to finally meet Stantonbury in the final. It was a close game but the girls scored again in the second half to secure victory to become county champions. The girls were undefeated throughout the whole tournament but face a harder challenge next year in the National Cup competition.
