Our ‘No Cs for me’ competition starts today for all students in years 7-10. Remember; the fewer Cs you receive the more chance you have of winning a prize! Every half term, in each school, there will be a class prize of a trip to a location of your choice. Also, students who receive no Cs for a full term will be invited to an assembly with Mr Collier, where their achievements will be celebrated and individual prizes will be given out. What will you win? Good luck everyone!
Here at Walker TC we are celebrating fantastic exam results yet again! For the fourth consecutive year we have seen an improvement in the number of GCSE students achieving 5 A*-C grades, including English and Maths. From all here in College, huge congratulations to all those who collected exam results during the summer. Well done, you deserve it!

When it comes to GCSE examination success, parents have a right to expect the best teachers for their students; top quality support when they need it most with ambition to reach full potential. We settle for nothing but the best at Walker Technology College. Our starting belief is that every student can pass.
Walker is one of the few schools to have Advanced Skills Teachers in English, Maths and Science. We are also lucky in that we have an Advanced Skills Teacher leading 'The Works'. These teachers are nationally recognised as being in the top 10% of all teachers in the country. Students have achieved outstanding results in these most vital subjects including A* grades at GCSE, even in year 10.
Walker is the only school in the North East running focussed assertive mentoring for Year 11 students. Students are assigned a mentor to guide and support them through the crucial preparation to the final GCSE examinations. This involves regular quality time and support with an outstanding teacher and mentor to help manage the stresses and challenges of the examination season.
The government expects 3 levels of progress in English and Mathematics in secondary school. At Walker Technology College we want more. Our aim for all students is 4 levels of progress in English and Mathematics. What does this mean? If your child achieved a level 5 in their Year 6 KS2 SAT in English or Maths, at Walker we expect our teachers to aim for a grade A at GCSE for that student. Level 6 students will be encouraged to achieve A* at GCSE.
The students at Walker Technology College are better prepared than ever before for the competitive world that faces them following secondary school. Whether they choose to stay on in our own sixth form, move on to college, get an apprenticeship or employment we are confident our teaching, support and ambition will ensure they have the best start in their adult life.
