The first two Advanced Learning Days of 2012-13 have been completed with great success with a growing number of opportunities for our students. The activities are designed to extend beyond the curriculum and provide an aspect of learning away from normal lessons. The first two ALD's have allowed students from all year groups to experience a variety of opportunities from Newsday in year 7, to problem solving for CSI Murder Scene in year 9 and risk taking for The Stock Market Challenge in year 10.
Walton High welcomes all Year 6 pupils and their parents to our Open Morning on Saturday 13 October 2012. Come and see the school, talk to staff and students and hear Ms Currie, the Executive Principal speak in The Venue.
Families with surnames beginning A-L should enter via The Venue entrance off Hindhead Knoll and go to the theatre for a talk by the Principal at 10.15. There will be an opportunity to tour the school, meeting students and staff, after the presentation.
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.
