My name is Jack; I am currently studying A-Level History, Sociology and Psychology. I attended St. Vincent’s Primary school up until year 4 then went to Whickham until year 7 then moved back to Walker in year 8. Upon returning to Walker, I immediately felt welcomed and relaxed comfortably into the school’s curriculum. This was a massive relief; having moved school twice already, to feel at ease meant a lot.
My name is Lucy and I’m currently in year 13 studying English Literature, Sociology and History. After sixth form I hope to attend university to study History. I joined Walker Technology College as a year 7 in 2008 and naturally chose to join the Sixth Form due to the continued support I received throughout my time in the school.

Katie is one of nineteen students in the Sixth Form who have been successful in their application to Northumbria University for the NU Entry programme. This scheme supports applications to Higher Education and helps students to reach their full potential. She is also undertaking a work placement with the younger children at Sir Charles Parsons School to gain experience and help prepare for her University application. “This opportunity with Northumbria University and the work placement at Sir Charles Parsons School will take me closer to reaching my dream of becoming a qualified Children’s Nurse”.

In a very competitive game, our academy team managed to add to the silverware that has already been acquired this season by our Year 8 and Year 10 football teams. With the youngest squad in the 6th form league, this group of players is showing real signs of a team on the up, who are all ready to kick on and prove themselves again next season with more success.
Like it or not, the internet and social networking is here to stay. As your child grows and becomes more independent, it is only natural that they take this independence online. The internet has changed all of our lives, and your child has grown up during this change. Many of the things that confuse, baffle or even scare us, are part of the everyday for them. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much and it’s likely that you’ll be playing catch-up with the way your child is using the internet.
What can you do to help your child stay safe online?
