8th March 2013

Bolton School Jazz Band were the overall winners of the School Band Category of the Great North Big Band Festival, and the Saxophone Section were also awarded the best section! The band performed alongside many of the UK’s best youth and university bands at the 10th Annual Great North Big Band Jazz Festival and Competition, which this year took place at the North Shore entertainment venue at Sunderland University on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of March.
Lots of sport news to report this week! Eight teams took part in the Finals day of the Bolton Schools’ Primary Football Championship, held at Bolton School this week. The quarter final, semi final and the final matches were all played on the day and after a tense penalty shoot out, the winners were Sacred Heart with Eagley taking second spot. And year 7 and 8 pupils in the Girls’ Division have been given the opportunity to be a part of the Girls’ Football Development Programme, providing them with the opportunity to be coached by fully qualified football coaches from Bolton Wanderers FC. As one of the County’s top U19 female cricketers, year 10 Girls’ Division pupil Nalisha Patel, had the exciting opportunity of being part of a tour to Dubai in February - 14 players were selected for the trip which consisted of eight days in Dubai, playing against a variety of Counties from England as well as UAE. While the Boys’ Division U18 water polo team cruised through to the English Schools' Water Polo Finals, to be played at Walsall on Saturday, with a penalty shootout with Manchester Grammar School deciding who won the group and progressed to the final. And the Junior Girls’ Year 4/5 Swim Team will represent Bolton at the 2013 Greater Manchester School Games on the 19th March, following their performance in the qualifying.
Bolton School Old Boy and international pop star, Max George from the Wanted, wished current pupils Alex Deakin and Caroline Blair good luck when they performed in a sold out production of Les Miserables at the Z-Arts Centre in Manchester. And Alex was also in the spotlight at School when he and Matthew Kay created history in the Boys’ Division Young Musician of the Year Competition as the first time that vocalists have won first prize in both the Junior Young Musician and the Senior Young Musician Finals.
Also this week, Hesketh House was transformed into a scene from 1920’s Paris as the girls dressed up to celebrate ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’ for World Book Day. And we are proud to be a sponsor of the prestigious Bolton and Bury Business Awards for the fourth year running and will once again sponsor the Young Person/Apprentice of the Year category.
