YR8 Girls 5 a side Football 2018 19Our Year 8 Girls took on the challenge of retaining their Championship title at the Girls 5 a-side Football Tournament hosted here at Walnut Tree. This is the same tournament that they won last year as Year 7 students.

They came up against some strong teams but managed to win their group and go on to play Lord Grey in the semi-final. Their attitude and work ethic was commendable - winning the game 4-1 which meant they then had to play Oakgrove in the final. 

It was a fantastic final - full of commitment and the passion to win. Through quality build up play, they managed to score their first goal which gave them the belief that they could win the game. Win they did, with a final score of 4-2.

The girls continue to do Walton High and themselves proud in every game and competition in which they participate  and proudly remain champions of the MK Girls 5 a-side  Football Tournament.

Well done to Emily, Annie, Tayla, Elise, Nyanzobe and Amy.

Year 9 GCSE Music students from Brooklands and Walnut Tree took part in a project last term aimed at exploring the musical wonder of Schubert through singing and composition. After a few weeks of working in lessons the project concluded with a day at The Stables where students worked with  professional musicians to sing and compose. Students are now taking their ideas from the day and creating pieces of music to be used as coursework for their music studies.
