5th December 2012

Bolton Wanderers Football Club is to collaborate with Bolton School Boys’ Division to launch a new two-year international sports course. The programme will allow 16 year old students from around the world to move to Bolton to spend 3 days a week experiencing elite football training and 2 days a week studying A-levels in PE and Business Studies at Bolton School. Participants will live with a local host family and experience total immersion within a professional football club, while mixing with Bolton School Sixth Form boys as they join tutor groups and make full use of the school’s new state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre, which will open in September 2013.
Children at Beech House have shown their generosity by going through their own toy collections to find things less fortunate boys and girls might enjoy this Christmas. Representatives from Bolton Lions Club were delighted at the quality and quantity of toys that had been collected at the Infant School this year. While Girls’ Division pupils have been helping to prepare shoeboxes of Christmas gifts for needy children as part of Operation Christmas Child - the world's largest children's Christmas appeal. And Movember came to an end for teachers in the Boys' Division who joined the global campaign to raise awareness about men's health. The teachers were sponsored by friends, family and pupils to grow their moustaches and hope to raise over £200.
Able and talented pupils from local primary schools enjoyed a day absorbed in the Classics at Bolton School this week. Year 6 girls and boys took part in a series of workshops in both the Girls’ Division and the Boys’ Division in which they learnt about Roman warfare, Roman and Greek theatre and their Gods and myths. Seven pupils from Years 9, 10 and 11 from the Girls’ Division achieved highly at a Model United Nations competition held at Stockport Grammar School, where they represented the countries of Pakistan and South Africa. And Year 9 pupil, Jack Virgin, is the first pupil from the School to be awarded a Silver medal in the national Junior Mathematical Olympiad (JMO) - placing him well within the top 100 pupils out of the quarter of a million participants.
The two finalists for next week’s Bolton School Girls’ Division MasterChef Live Cook Off Grand Final have been announced as Melissa Cordingly and Charlotte Winrow, after a keenly contested semi-final where contestants were charged with preparing a wedding dessert.
And Bolton School is playing a starring role in the BBC's drama Last Tango in Halifax. The Boys' Division Great Hall, several classrooms and offices as well as corridors were used to represent a quality school in the filming of the romantic comedy series which stars Sarah Lancashire as Headmistress of a school. The series can be seen on Tuesdays at 9.00pm on BBC1.
