Our current YR11 Rugby squad have contributed massively to our trophy cabinet during their years at Walton High. They have been regular winners of both leagues and tournaments and last year, as U15’s, they won the prestigious Bucks County Cup that every Rugby playing school in the County yearns for.

Their last ever action in Walton High colours came at the MK Schools YR11 Tournament held at MKRFC. Their ability and quality shone through yet again to capture the title with a show of courage and strength. They beat every school they faced up to their last game which was against Ousedale. By this time, Ousedale had won all their games, except one. Walton High had the luxury of needing a minimum of a draw to win the title. It was a very closely matched game with both sides giving their absolute all. In the end, a draw was good enough and Mr Harris was, once again, justifiably proud of a very determined performance from all. He chose Harrison as his Player of the Tournament who scored a total of nine tries in true Harrison style. Baraka was voted Players’ Player by the rest of the team. He put in a stand-out performance with a pace that, in reality, no one from any opposing school could really handle.

The winning team, Harrison, Blake, Josh, Morgan, Freddie, Charlie and Baraka are pictured with Mr Harris and Cosimo, who due to an injury, was unable to play this time. As a major player in the history of this squad, he went along to support his team mates and revel in their success with them.

Savannah2Walton High’s second competition took the Equestrian Team to Addington Manor, a very impressive equestrian centre just outside Milton Keynes with amazing facilities in a beautiful setting, made even lovelier by the sunny day.

Competing for the school were Jasmin riding Blue Moon, Lola riding Beechwood, Savannah riding Abigail Van T Leeuwirkenhof and Tegan riding Four Socks.
