Up and Coming Projects:
Walkden High School's Year 9 G&T have teamed up with BBC 21cc and Chatsworth High. The project will develop a wide variety of skills and introduce new ways of thinking. During the project the pupils will be using cutting edge multi-media technology complimenting traditional learning methods.
Pupils will be adding their finished videos, pictured and their own thoughts on the process soon.
In March our Year 7 G&T will be visiting Manchester Museum Of Science and Industry to take part in a science detective event. During the activity pupils will work with 'real-life' police, solicitors and forensic scientists. They will be using thinking and problem-solving skills to "crack a crime" and will take part in practical expermients. Our Year 7s will also have the opportunity to explore the new "Da Vinci - The Genius" 3D exhibition.
G&T Dance students from mixed year groups have been offered a unique opportunity to gain valuable experience at Bolton College with some of the industry's professionals. Places were limited and we are proud that so many of our pupils were offered a place - Walkden High have potential stars in the making!!
Our Year 9 and 10 G&T will be visiting The University of Manchester in March. Through a variety of workshops, pupils will gain a valuable insight into life at University. Students will be given the opportunity to speak to student ambassadors who will offer advice and guidance to further education.
Form Peer Mentors and their Year 8 Forms take part in a weekly quiz. The winning form will be announced in this space!
