18th January 2013

Despite the wintery weather this week, hundreds of children made the trip to Bolton School for our entrance exam, standards were high and it was great to welcome so many talented youngsters.
An upcoming exhibition at Bolton Museum is set to feature the life and work of Constance Howarth, a former pupil of our School in the 1940s. Constance was a successful fashion designer in the 1950’s with her designs attracting attention from the fashionistas of London, Paris and New York. The exhibition, dedicated to her memory, will run from Saturday 26 January to Sunday 7 April, showcasing Constance’s sketches, designs and dresses from the 1950s onwards, so go along and take a look if you can.
And Year 10 pupil Sarah Ibberson has been raising money for the LivLife charity by busking in the Lake District. Sarah took it upon herself to give up her time and play her saxophone outside the Booths Store in Windermere over two weekends before Christmas. She played Christmas carols to the shoppers for a total of around 12 hours and managed to raise £667. Sarah chose to LivLife to support her classmates who are going out to Tanzania in the summer to see first hand the work the charity does and to offer a helping hand.
