YR8 Bucks County Dodgeball successMr Eyre and the Year 8 Boys dodgeball team went to the Bucks County Schools U13 Dodgeball Finals held at Stoke Mandeville Stadium and came back to Walton High with a trophy and gold medals which were won in impressive style.

It was a long day with five other qualifying schools also competing. Dodgeball is fast and furious. Each match consisted of five legs and each leg was two minutes long.

The opposition were Sir Henry Floyd School, Buckingham School, Cottesloe School, Chiltern Hills Academy and Lord Grey School. Walton High boys beat them all. Lord Grey, who also had won all of their games were the last opponents This, in effect, was the final and decider of the County title and Walton High won 4-1.

Mr Eyre was, in his own words, “ buzzing” and so proud of his team. He gave special mention to Rashin Panthi, who became a target for the all the other schools who quickly identified his throwing power and accuracy. Lucas Bailey’s catching was to be commended too. Mr Eyre likened his hands to Velcro!

The team, Lucas Bailey, Harry Lockyer, Rashin Panthi, Nat Emond, Jonathan Carlson-Jones and Aaron Purewal, are pictured with their medals and trophy and a very happy Mr Eyre.

U15 Rugby 2017 18Many, many  congratulations to our U15 Rugby team who beat Akeley Wood School 5-0 in the semi-final of the Bucks Schools Rugby County Cup. The game was played at Emerson Valley Sports Ground in very muddy conditions and horrible wet weather.

The only try of the game came from Freddie Reynolds in the first half of the game, which was entirely dominated by Walton High.

Nick Duff played outstandingly well, putting in tackles of immense physicality and was nominated as both Manager’s player and Players’ Player.

We are yet to find out who, when and where Walton High will play, but the team are very proud and excited to have got to the final of the Rugby County Cup, which is a first for Walton High.

The team and Mr Harris are pictured at the start of the year.

This has been a season which has already seen them win the MK Schools YR10 Rugby Tournament. This additional achievement is the icing on the cake for them.

Santander 2018On Thursday 1 March 2018, Walton High held its second annual Careers Show that was open to all students as well as the general public. The show hosted around 12 exhibitors with a range of career and networking opportunities such as apprenticeships, graduate schemes and part to full-time employment. We were incredibly pleased to have over 100 students and parents attending, despite the challenging weather conditions. 

The show featured stands by companies such as  Metro Bank, John Lewis and the University of Buckingham. A particular student favourite was the NHS Careers in Midwifery stand, which gathered interest from students right up until the end of the show.

We would like to thank our brilliant exhibitors for making their way here through the elements, as well as the Post 16 students who helped the evening run smoothly.
