Business & Enterprise
On 4 July 2002 the Secretary of State for Education announced the award of Business and Enterprise status to 18 schools nationally. Walton High was in this pioneering group of schools and become one of the first Business and Enterprise Colleges in the country on 1 September 2002.
In December 2005 Walton High achieved an "outstanding" Ofsted report and in July 2006 High Performance Status. In April 2006 our commitment to Enterprise education was recognised nationally and Walton High became the S'EEN Hub for the Milton Keynes, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire network. In November 2006 we were successfully redesignated a B&E school and as a consequence we were also awarded Training Status and became a YST Consultant School. We are currently the lead school in the MK Bucks Enterprise Learning Partnership and work closely with schools in the region.
A key part of the Business and Enterprise ethos is our commitment to continuing, lifelong learning, both for personal development and for the key skills for the workplace. All of our community and business courses are delivered via the Walton Learning Centre through a mixture of evening classes, weekend schools and Master Classes.
Walton High is a centre of learning. Values of excellence and scholarship blend with innovation in learning styles. The fun and fundamentals of learning matter. Walton High & Walton Learning Centre (WLC) work in partnership with the community, to provide high quality lifelong learning, through an exciting curriculum encouraging enterprise and business activities. We pledge to provide for all students a learning culture which will develop the skills needed to progress into employment, further training and higher education.
