2019 04 29 at 23.23.03What a fantastic way for these girls at Walnut Tree to end this season.

They faced Oakgrove in the League Play-Off Final and what a competitive game it was. They won 5-3 and are now Year 8 Girls MK Schools Football League Champions 2018/19.

I’m so proud of all who played a part in our success this season.

Bring on next year!

Most of the girls who represented our team are pictured at the start of the season and also at the MK Schools YR8 5 a-side Tournament, which they also won.

On Friday 29 March, Walton High shared the magic of reading with a 24hour Readathon at both Brooklands and Walnut Tree.  The event not only included non-stop reading of the Harry Potter series, but also offered students an opportunity to engage in some wizarding fun, completing an array of activities from Herbology classes to Divination, designing new socks for Dobby or practising their own patronus.  Our libraries were magically transformed with the reading chairs taking pride of place for the event.

In the evening at Brooklands our students,  with their wands at the ready, continued the challenge until 8.30am on Saturday.  They successfully worked in groups to ensure that we made it through the 24 hours.  Students also had the opportunity to decorate their own Harry Potter themed cupcake or complete a wizarding quiz.  The witches and wizards survived the night shift and there certainly was a magical reading buzz throughout and into the witching hours of the morning!

Thanks to all students and staff who contributed to this fantastic event!

gracespencerbbcAt Walton High we like to take pride in the students who go above and beyond with extracurricular activities, in particular those working towards helping the local community and environment. Grace Spicer (Year 12) is exceptional in this respect and has been taking part in various schemes around Milton Keynes in addition to studying at Post 16.

We asked Grace to elaborate on what she has been up to:

‘As well as studying, I also participate in several activities outside of school. I am proudly a member of the Parks Trust Youth Rangers and the Milton Keynes Youth Cabinet’
