Walton High celebrates GCSE success

Year 11 students at Walton High are once again celebrating very successful results in both academic and vocational courses.

Year 11 students adapted quickly to the ever-changing learning environment with excellent levels of engagement and focused on their learning with resilience and maturity.  It is therefore fitting that today we celebrate their achievements and their hard work as they look to the future and the opportunity that post 16 study and the workplace brings.

Congratulations to Kelvin Yu (Walnut Tree) with his ten Grade 9 results and to Emma McGinn (Brooklands) with her seven Grade 9s, one Grade 8 and two Distinction* grades.

Other students achieving top grades are Nazim Hussain (nine Grade 9s, and a Grade 8); Rhiana Arora (eight Grade 9s, one Grade 8 and one Distinction*); Haider Kazmi (seven Grade 9s and three Grade 8s); Rashin Panthi (seven Grade 9s, 2 Grade 8s and a Grade 7); Noura Khamis-Obu (seven Grade 9s, two grade 8s and a Distinction); Tayo Babs-Olugbemi (seven Grade 9s, a Grade 8 and two Grade 7s); Jemma Tye (six Grade 9s, three Grade 8s and a Distinction*) and Ahalya Gunarathnam (six Grade 9s, two Grade 8s and a Grade 7).

Strong performance was maintained in English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, French, Computer Science, Philosophy, Sociology and Performing Arts.
