We are extremely proud that Joseph Webber has been shortlisted in the Sciences and Engineering category for the 2015 Student of the Year Awards.
Joe has been invited by Emma Lyon, the awards co-ordinator, to attend the awards ceremony lunch at the 5 star Grange St Pauls’Hotel in London, on Friday 25th September. He will be accompanied by his parents and Dr Harding who nominated him.
Dr Harding said “We nominated him because he is amazingly good all round but especially in Sciences – he has also done lot of work with the OU and has published papers”.
Congratulations Joseph and good luck.

Niftylift is one of the largest manufacturers of cherry pickers, work platforms, access platforms, lift platforms and boom lifts. On 8 July they invited us to spend an afternoon at their new premises at Shenley Wood to mark the National Women in Engineering Day.
There will be a Sports Day Assembly on the last afternoon of term - Wednesday 22 July. This will celebrate students sporting achievements on that day together with the participation of the whole school in making this such a memorable experience. The exact timings for such an event are difficult to predict so it may be that students will leave up to 15 minutes early on that afternoon. Students whose parents do not wish them to leave school early on that day will be accommodated in Student Services. Please advise your child if you would prefer them to remain in school until the end of the normal school day.
On 13th July, six of our year 9 students were selected to represent Walton High in the annual Bottle Rocket Challenge. This was run by the Open University and held at Denbigh School with five schools competing for the trophy. Walton High went in as the reigning champions (no pressure!) and succeeded in retaining the trophy for the second year running. Our students yet again, designed and launched two successful rockets, one for distance and the other for accuracy. They also eloquently spoke to the judges about the physics behind their designs. Well done Georgina Lee, Kiera Evans, Jack Meijer, Kamran Arora, Courtney Wardell and Ameen Sangari.
Our main purpose is to ENHANCE the quality of life at Walton High from a student perspective. We hope to ensure that STUDENTS’ OPINIONS are considered in the day to day administration and FUTURE plans of the School...more
