Sporting achievements[edit]

In March 2000, Walton High School Rugby Team won the Midland Counties State Schools Under 14 Cup. Walton’s path to the final consisted of victories over Abbot Beyne High School (53-0), Cheslyn Hay High School (49-0), John Taylor High School (44-0), North Kesteven (31-12) and Cardinal Newman High School 15-7.

The 1999/2000 season also saw Walton High School Rugby Team win the Staffordshire Schools Cup, beating Newcastle College 18-5. This trophy was retained for a further two years, following a 10-10 draw and a 12-5 win in the 2001 and 2002 finals respectively, both contested with Newcastle College.

Following the Midland Counties State Schools Under 14 Cup victory, the rugby team qualified for the Daily Mail Cup national competition, but the team was beaten in a controversial game in the last 32 of the tournament.
