3rd February 2012

Over 90 girls from 24 local primary schools visited Bolton School this week for the first Just4Girls Science and Maths Day. The experience provided Year 4 girls with an opportunity to enjoy a range of traditionally 'male' subjects in a new and fun way, and was aimed at linking science and maths together. Throughout the day there were sessions in Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, and also a quiz. The Just4Girls Science Day is the latest in a series of events for local primary school boys and girls to attend at Bolton School. And science was on the agenda again as fourteen Year 10 pupils from the Boys' and Girls' Divisions had the chance to learn from world-renowned scientists when they attended GCSE Live at the Bridgewater Hall. The pupils attended mini-lectures given by eminent scientists on a variety of Science topics relevant to the Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSE courses, and were also given some vital tips on GCSE examination success from an experienced science examiner.
In sport our U15s footballers have reached the final of the ISFA Cup! The boys reached the final of this prodigious cup competition after a 3-1 semi-final win against Repton. They will meet Hampton School in the final, to be played on 8th March at Burton Albion FC, officiated by a Premier League referee. This is the third consecutive year that Bolton School has appeared in an ISFA final, following last year’s U15s defeat to Whitgift and victory in the U13s competiton two years ago, an achievement those same boys are hoping to emulate in the U15s final in March. And Girls' Division year 8 pupil Sannah Ali is the UK National under 5ft 4 champion of Karate! Sannah attends the Shorai Martial Arts and Karate School in Bolton and decided to take up the sport to learn self defence and discipline. To gain her title Sannah took part in the Shorai Open Tournament at Harper Green Leisure Centre where she had to perform several Katas and also points matches to take the trophy.
The stunning landscape artwork of 48 Year 6 boys is now on display in the Upper Hall of Bolton town centre's busy indoor Market Place. The paintings make a dramatic and colourful wall of art with scenes ranging from beaches, countryside, the sea, mountains and waterfalls.
