Brooklands Campus

IMG 0022Monday 31st October 2016 will remain a date of huge significance in the history of Walton High; the Brooklands Campus opened its doors for the first time to students. This £25million state of the art learning environment was finally ready to be occupied by its first cohort of Years 7-9. What had originally been planned as a six week summer holiday of unloading, unpacking and assembling had to be condensed into the October half term. Thanks to an enormous effort by staff and Walton High’s Post-16 students, everything was ready in time.

Although only 3 months have passed, the impact of the high quality education provided is already evident. Everyone has settled in well and the most is being made of the opportunities afforded by the excellent facilities.

Haider Kazmi: “Along with other students, I helped to design the Café. We were shown some proposals and we influenced the layout and the colour scheme. I’m really proud of what we have achieved. We also helped create a plan for how the Independent Learning Area (ILA) will ultimately look.

IMG 0084“The school is very modern and the technology is excellent. Every classroom has a large smart board; its interactive features really help our learning.”

Natalia Walenciejczyk: “Brooklands is very attractive. I’m interested in sports and the facilities and opportunities here are great. I’m joining lots of clubs.”

Josh Hallam: “The school is well equipped with all the things we need to learn; both inside and outside the classroom. We try and make the most of them and are encouraged to take up activities we have not done before. At lunchtime we can go to the ILA if we have some work to complete.”

Narthika Sivaloganathan: “There is lots of space; I really enjoy it here. All the teachers are approachable and are willing to run sessions after school if there is anything we need help with.”

MKET Daubeney Gate (Shenley Church End) Alternative Provision Primary Free School

Support from primary schools across Milton Keynes for the forest school inspired alternative provision free school continues to grow. Due to the unique nature of the curriculum to be offered, finding a suitable site within Milton Keynes has been a challenge. However, a location with great potential has now been identified in Shenley Church End and the Education Funding Agency has concluded negotiations with the landowners to secure a long term lease. To avoid the need to open in temporary accommodation, the school is now scheduled to open in September 2017.

The planning application for the development of the Alternative Provision Free School has been submitted to Milton Keynes Council. This follows a recent, and very successful, resident’s drop-in session at which the plans for the site were outlined and residents questions answered in detail. It is a requirement of the planning process to undertake a round of community engagement and for this more than 70 local people attended offering, in the main,  overwhelming support for the proposed scheme.

A number of potential contractors have expressed an interest in developing the site on a ‘traditional build contract’ basis and the formal tender inviting detailed responses will be published on 25 April 2016 with a closing date of 13 June 2016. Contractors interested in being added to the list likely to receive the tender should make contact with Jo Murphy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

It is anticipated that construction on site will commence on 19 September 2016 with a completion target date of 4 September 2017.

A further round of evidence and support gathering from Milton Keynes Schools has revealed continuing (and enhanced) support for the project from the primary school community.

For more information regarding the project or to express a possible interest in working in this unique environment in 2017 please contact  david Hopkins at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
