Post 16 students at Walton High are once again celebrating very successful results in academic and vocational courses.
Students have achieved remarkable success across a range of academic qualifications with 20% of the A Levels awarded being A*-A grades. Subjects where more than half their students gained the highest grades were Economics, French, Geography, History, Mathematics, Further Maths, Music, and Sociology. In particular, students did well in Economics with 75% of students gaining A* - B grades.
Students’ performance in vocational courses continues to be excellent with over half the grades awarded being Distinction* or Distinction. This demonstrates the continued dedication of these students to their studies.
We are extremely proud that, yet again, many students will be taking up offers at the country’s highest ranked universities to study a range of highly sought after degrees. Alice Miller’s A*A*A* A results see her going to Cambridge University to study Maths while Sampurna Ganguly’s A A A grades will take her to Oxford University to read English Literature. Kamran Arora’s A*A*A*A grades see him going to Warwick university to study Maths and Physics. Adam Horne’s A*A*A A grades will take him to the University College, London to study Economics. Achieving three A* grades, Georgina Lee will head to the University of York to read Biological Sciences. Chun Hay Tang’s A*A A B will take him to the Imperial College London to study Biomedical Engineering and Irene Obaseki’s A*A A will take her to Brighton and Sussex Medical School to read medicine.
Students who pursued an Applied General or Technical pathway are also celebrating success with Ella Bowdrey achieving D*D*D and going on to study Primary Education at Oxford Brookes. Rachel King’s D*D*D will take her to Northampton University to study Paramedic Science while Annabelle Beale’s D*D will take her to Reading University to study Business Management. Annabelle Idu achieved D*D, as well as two A Levels so she will be going on to study Computer Science at Bangor University while Dominik Wojtak’s DDD will take him to Northampton University to study Psychology.
