The Y8 Parents Evening will be held on Thursday May 19th 2022 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. This is a subject based evening.
Appointments can be made on line, via schoolcloud.co.uk, and below is a guide on how this can be done, should you need it. When making your appointments it is recommended that a 5 minute gap is left between each appointment to allow time to move around without having to rush.
As the majority of subject area staff teach more than one Y8 group, appointments are 5 minutes in length. This so that they can see as many parents as possible. Should a more detailed conversation be needed then that can be held at another time. Please contact individual subject staff to arrange this.
Should you have any questions about the Parents Evening please contact your son / daughter’s form Tutor in the first instance.

Nine Year 11 students from The Milton Keynes Academy were joined by nine Year 11 students from from Walton High on a trip to Brunel University as part of their Urban Scholars programme.
The students worked on a model CSI investigation, looking at evidence such as DNA, images, and blood samples to identify a murderer. Students were taught problem solving skills, developed their team working ability and had to make quick decisions. It was fantastic to see the collaboration between students, and the partnership between our two schools.
