Year 11 students at Walton High are once again celebrating excellent results in their GCSEs. 

After a school year that ended abruptly with lockdown in March, Year 11 students adapted quickly to home learning with excellent levels of engagement.  They then had to deal with considerable confusion and mixed messages from both the DfE and Ofqual regarding their results (which for students studying BTec or CTec courses continues) but they have handled this with resilience and maturity.  It is therefore fitting that we celebrate their achievements and hard work as they look to the future.

After a year like no other, Post-16 students at Walton High are celebrating their success with the publication of the results of A Levels and vocational courses. Over their two years of study students have worked hard on their chosen pathways and have shown tremendous talent, creativity and dedication. After the cancellation of their exams and the abrupt end to their time at Post-16, our students showed great resilience and maturity in very uncertain times. We are extremely impressed with how they acquitted themselves throughout the period of school closure and lockdown and we could not be prouder of their personal growth and achievements in and out of the classroom.

With students unable to spend their Classchart points due to the Covid19 lockdown, it was decided that all outstanding points would be converted to raffle tickets for the annual Apple iPad draw. The draw took place on 1 July and the lucky winner from each campus collected their new Apple iPad, case and keyboard shortly afterwards.

Matas Kisieliu from Brooklands Campus came in on 13 July to collect his prize from Vice Principal, Miss Bolam and Head of Key Stage 3, Miss Mather. Miss Mather congratulated Matas on his win and thanking him for being an excellent role model to other students.

Whilst at Walnut Tree, Annalise Milmine turned up incredibly promptly at her agreed time to collect her prize from Vice Principal, Mr Bennett and her form tutor, Miss De Spirito. When Miss De Spirito was informed that one of her tutees had won this year she said, “Annalise is a very respectful, hardworking, creative and conscientious student who takes every aspect of her school life seriously. She is involved in extracurricular activities outside of school and also puts herself forward for many opportunities within the school environment. A well deserved winner, congratulations!”

Congratulations again to both our winners who embody the spirit of our school by making the most of their learning opportunities both within and beyond the curriculum. We know that their new iPads will be well used in the current remote learning environment.
