Assistant Principal, Post 16

It is my pleasure to lead Post 16 and I am delighted that you are considering further education with us. Students at Walton Post 16 enjoy a vast array of leadership opportunities including Student Subject Leaders, Post 16 Committee and Student Academic Mentors. As part of their wider enrichment, students can take advantages of leadership opportunities, work experience, community links, cultural trips and extra-curricular clubs.  We offer a bespoke programme of advice and guidance that informs students about future pathways including higher education and apprenticeships. Our dedicated team is relentless in ensuring an effective climate for learning to make sure that all students reach their full potential. We look forward to welcoming you at our open evening or for one of our ‘Talk and Tour’ events.
