Race for Life

  MG 7315

On the 18th July 2018, both staff and students took part in the Cancer Research UK Race for Life to help raise money for this cause that has affected a number of friends and family of Walton.

Participants spent the afternoon running five times around the field and raising money by creating and manning charity stalls.

Walton completely smashed their £500 target and raised a total of over £1000 to donate to Cancer Research UK,

Transition Week at Walton

For the second year running, Walton welcomed the new Year 7 students into the academy for a whole week. As expected, the students all had a fantastic time, experiencing a variety of lessons, meeting their form tutor and building friendships with their peers.

We are firm believers that enabling the students to access their new setting for a whole week supports the transition process and put their mind at ease in preparation for September.
Throughout the week, the student got the opportunity to experience how the academy runs and were introduced to key members of staff so they have familiar faces to seek on their arrival on Tuesday 4 September.

As well as going into lessons, the students also competed for the first set of House Points for the next academic year. A compilation of musical numbers with singing and dancing followed by an afternoon of sporting events. Congratulations to Burghley House as they gained the maximum 1000 House Points.

Sports Day

 MG 6299

On Wednesday 11 July, Walton held their annual Sports Day. It was a fantastic day whereby athletes from all four houses took part in an array of athletic events, including Discuss, Javelin and Long Jump in the morning followed by all of the track events in the afternoon. We welcomed parents to the event who thoroughly enjoyed watching their daughters and other compete to a very high standard.

The afternoon events were kicked off with a staff relay where the competition was fierce but dignity all in tack. Huge Well Done to Miss Sandell, Miss Beswick, Miss Morton and Mr Birchenough who earned the top spot.

The students were all ready to go to earned House Points for their own house and walk away with a gold, silver or bronze medal. We had fantastic results and were able to witness great technique across the whole day. As always the relay races at the end of the afternoon were thrilling to watch and demonstrated a whole team effort with the spectators all of their seats cheering on the athletes.

Walton students flying high on RAF STEM day

IMG 0136

Year 9 students had the chance to put their design and engineering skills to the test today (5 July 2018) by taking part in an aircraft design STEM day.  Sponsored by the RAF and delivered by the Smallpeice Trust, the day was a chance for our girls to take part in an engaging and practical session which enhanced their curriculum learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Using their problem solving, creative and design skills, the girls worked in teams in a challenge to design a prototype and model of a glider aircraft which would cost as little as possible and weigh under 80gm.  The most successful aircrafts would be those judged to stay in the air for the longest time and travelling the furthest distance. The teams were also tasked with ensuring their gliders were light, strong and stable and glided in a straight line without climbing or falling, as well as preparing marketing materials to promote and sell their protoypes.

At the end of the STEM day, the winners were selected based on product performance, team working, aesthetics, cost and marketing.  Team 2 took first place with team 10 as runners-up.

Well done to all the teams involved for their hard work and enthusiasm.
