15th March 2013

Pupils and staff at Bolton School have been doing their bit for Comic Relief with many fundraising efforts going on. At Beech House the pupils took part in a bake off competition, dressed in fancy dress or something red, held a cake sale and told jokes in assembly.
We have many more sporting achievements to report - Year 10 pupil Dominic Walker has set a new British and English 50m backstroke record in his age group. While sixth form pupil Teddy Pender has qualified for the British Championships in June and Year 11 pupil, Lewis Daly, has been selected for the GB Youth Water Polo Team. The Boys’ U16 Badminton team are the North West Champions, putting them through to the Center Parcs National Schools Badminton Championships final for the second year running. In the Girls’ Division the Senior Lacrosse team are National Schools' Lacrosse Championship Winners and The Bolton School U14 Netball Team are Town Champions. At Junior level, Boys and Girls are both celebrating a double success after winning both the Bolton Primary Schools' Cross Country League and Championship too.
Award winning children’s author, Alan Gibbons, visited the Boys’ Division this week to talk to Year 8 and 9 pupils about life as an author. In his talk, ‘How I do it’, Alan spoke to the boys about how he became a writer and the inspiration for his books and the process he goes through to write them. Year 6 pupils at Park Road, Krishnan Ajit and Mark Kattakayam, have been awarded Bronze certificates in the National Primary Maths Challenge - putting them in the top 522 young mathematicians in the country! And the team from Clarendon Cottage Primary School were the winners of the Bolton School Big Quiz for local primary schools, with Altrincham Prep School taking second place. Nine teams pitted their wits against one another over the course of ten testing rounds, which covered everything from Current affairs, Observation, Geography, Literature, Science, History, Maths Puzzle, Famous Faces, Sequence and Sport!
