Staffordshire Young Musician finalists
We have in school not one but THREE finalists in the Staffordshire Young Musician of the Year competitions. Sophie (Y13) was runner up in the final on Saturday of the Staffordshire Young Singer - congratulations.
James (Y7) who plays French Horn and Alicia (Y13) who plays saxophone will both be competing in their final in July. We wish them the very best of luck in their events.
Part of the proceeds from the interval and entry will be supporting Seametrey School in Cambodia. Anna (Y13) will hand over the donation when she becomes a volunteer at Seametrey from January 2017.
We have had an anonymous donation of £40 towards Seametrey taking our running total to nearly £200.

Peer mentors and pupils form year 7 and 8 have entered a competition to create a 60 second commercial to warn against the dangers of Child Sexual Exploitation.
The peer mentors and mentees worked really well on this, and did everything themselves in a few hours, including the editing.
To show your support and help them win the competition, please follow the link and vote for them :-)

WALTON JOINS THE SPACE RACE!
Walton High School had the privilege of being selected by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to host a broadcast by the BBC. Walton's Eco-Warriors have signed up to take part in the joint RHS and European Space Agency project to grow rocket seeds which are with the astronaut Tim Peake on the International Space Station. Walton was selected because we are a RHS 5 Star Gardening School and a 2015 Gardening Team of the Year Finalist. We also have a strong scientific academic tradition. Last week, the BBC was in school to film students as the experiment was launched and the story was reported on the 6 o'clock News on Friday evening. Please follow the link below:
