Year 8 Computer Science students visited the Center for Computing History in Cambridge.

Students were grouped into ‘the Mighty Commodores,’ ‘Razor Sharp Spectrum’ and ‘The legendary Dragons.’ They took part in a range of activities, including a tour of the main gallery looking at the history and timeline of computing, an educational workshop and lecture on Robots in the ‘Mega Processor Zone,’ the world’s largest working model of a microprocessor and an interactive session with ‘Jennifer’ an advanced robot. They also had an engaging lesson on programming using pi models and controlling objects with Python.

mkschoolsyr10badmintonTourn1819Walton High swept the board at the recent MK Schools YR10 Girls Badminton Tournament held at Lord Grey.

Two of our girls, Alysha and Charlotte, have played together many times as part of our Badminton squad throughout their time at Walton High, but this ranks as their best performance yet.

Mr Eyre said they were “brilliant and a pleasure to watch”. Their technique at times was fantastic and he could tell right from the start that they would do very well against the other schools.

It was a pity that they had to play each other in the Singles semi-final,  but that is the nature of tournaments. Mr Eyre said it was a fantastic game that Alysha eventually won. She then went on to win the title quite comfortably.

Charlotte played with Alysha in the Doubles competition and they won that too.

Terrific effort girls!

ww1cen18 1914Students at both campuses have been involved in commemorating the WW1 Centenary. 

Every student at Walton High from was given the opportunity to create a poppy for remembrance, either for those who perished in the conflict or for someone close to them.

At least ninety students volunteered after school to help put the displays together.  We cannot thank them enough and would like to say how very proud we are.

Miss Crummy, Miss Keiller and the Art department worked tirelessly to produce the amazing installation with each poppy was handmade by students. 

Key Stage 3 Drama students prepared poems to perform at lunchtime and work from Year 6 students at Heronsgate is displayed in Student Services.

The levels of enthusiasm shown by students has been fantastic. A big thank you to everyone involved!
