Students from both campuses were selected to participate in The Young Engineers final day.  The event was organized by Network Rail at the Quadrant, Milton Keynes, where they were competing against other local schools.

Students were given a presentation on how the railway network is run and the challenges on increasing efficiency and capacity of the system. They were then given a tour of the impressive building and working environment. 

The final challenge was a programming task, to design a working signaling system. All students did themselves proud with the team from Brooklands taking an early lead in being the first to program warning signals to flash. The team from Walnut Tree were first to complete the challenge by programming working motion sensors and were awarded overall winners for their cooperation, team work and successful outcome. 

Congratulations to all the students involved for their enthusiasm and achievement.

danceBig congratulations to Yasmin in Year 8 who took part in the Nationwide Freestyle and Rock and Roll Medallist of the Year Championships in Blackpool.

Yasmin and her dance partner have been successful in their four years of dancing together and have reached the National Rock & Roll Finals every year, always being placed in the top three.

They managed it again this year, being placed 3rd in the country in Rock and Roll for their age category.

Well done Yasmin!

nw3As part of ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers week,’ graduates from Network Rail were invited to Walton High to run a series of challenges and activities for fifty Year 9 students from both campuses, on consecutive days.

The days included enlightening presentations, a bridge building activity, a planning activity and a LEGO challenge where the students had to build an automated level crossing barrier. The enthusiasm, engagement and the differing ways students solved the problems on the day was amazing.

Students were randomly divided into teams and showed great teamwork and cooperation. Feedback from students showed they immensely enjoyed the activities

Twelve students (six from each campus,) who particularly impressed on the day have now been selected by Network Rail to be invited to their Head Office. They will receive a tour of the building and facilities, hear from representatives from a variety of roles and be asked to take part in further challenges relating to engineering!
