Welcome to our new Year 7 for 2021!

Make sure that you keep an eye on the tabs to the left - more will appear in the coming weeks!  If you have any questions or concerns about the transition to high school, please contact our Head of Year 7, Miss Bailey, at e.bailey@waltonledale.lancs.sch.uk. We are looking forward to welcoming you to your new school! 

On this page you will find information about some of the people who will be working closely with you when you arrive.











My name is Miss Bailey and I am the Head of Year 7. I am so happy you have chosen this school and I cannot wait to meet and welcome you all to Walton-le-Dale. I understand that moving from primary school to high school is a big change, but do not worry, myself and our wonderful team of Year 7 form tutors will help you settle quickly and make you feel happy in your new chapter at Walton Le Dale.









Hi Year 7! My name is Miss Gallagher and I am a Year 7 form tutor and teacher of English at Walton-le-Dale High School. As I’m sure you can guess, I love reading (especially the classics!) and going to the theatre. I have recently moved to Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley as I love walking, running and exploring the outdoors, as well as cooking and baking! I am incredibly privileged to be able to work such fantastic students and staff

and can’t wait to meet you all in September!   

I am Mr Davison and I teach History at Walton-le-Dale High School. I am married and I have two young children. I like travelling, swimming, reading and spending time with my family. I also enjoy motor racing, gardening and my favourite food is Italian style food, whilst I also love cheese. I am from Warrington originally but I now live in Euxton. I studied History and Economics at the University of Liverpool and then studied for my Masters degree at Manchester University. 


My name is Mr Hutton and I am a Year 7 form tutor and teacher of Physical Education, History and Opening Minds at Walton-le-Dale High School. Yes, that is a lot of subjects, so I no doubt will be seeing you all at some point next year. As you can imagine, I love Sport and anything History related. I support Manchester City (I hope you do too), the outdoors and travelling as much as I can. I love working at Walton-le-Dale because I am privileged to be able to work with some fantastic students and staff. I can’t wait to meet you all!
