What's Going On
GCSE Results 2019
Walton High School students are celebrating today following the publication of a superb set of GCSE results.
Headteacher Neil Finlay commented: “We are delighted with this year’s results which have seen a very strong performance, particularly at the highest grades of 7, 8 and 9. This is especially pleasing in a national context where GCSE exams are becoming more challenging. This is the first year where every subject has moved over to the new 9-1 grading system and we are proud to have continued Walton High School’s strong tradition of outstanding academic performance. This is down to the hard work of an extremely committed year group who have been ably supported by their teachers and their parents. I look forward to further success as they progress into our Sixth Form with its bespoke accommodation and facilities.”
There were several outstanding individual performances, led by Jessica Downe who sat 11 exams and achieved a perfect set of 10 grade 9s and 1 A**! It is estimated that only a tiny handful of students in the entire country will have reached this standard. Hot on her heels were: Eleanor Pinkney with 8 grade 9s and 2 grade 8s; Amber Sedgley with 7 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s and 1 A*; Jason Jiang with 6 grade 9s, 2 grade 8s, 1 grade 7, I grade 5 and 1 A** and Supreena Banerjee with 5 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s, 1 grade 7, 1 grade 6 and 1 A*.
A Level Results 2019
Students and staff at Walton High School are celebrating today after receiving news of an excellent set of results.
Almost half of the A Level entries were marked at the very top grades of A*, A and B and this high performance was matched in our vocational level 3 courses where over 50% of students achieved either a Distinction*, a Distinction or a Merit.
Head teacher Neil Finlay commented: “I am really pleased with these impressive results. Our students deserve great credit for their hard work and dedication and I am grateful to their parents and their teachers for their magnificent support. It has been a pleasure watching these young people progress through the school and I look forward to hearing of their successes in the future.”
There were some brilliant individual results including Charlotte Wright with 2A*s and 1A, Megan Cooper with 2A*s and 1A, Adam Jackson with 1A* and 3As, Milly Holland with 1A* and 2As, Alys Moindrot with 1A*, 2As and 1B and Emily Wardle-Pearson with 1 Distinction* and 2As.
