28 March 2014

It's been a great week for sport - and not to mention very busy.

Year 13 student Natasha Lomas captained the Tyldesley Tennis Juniors' team to victory last weekend in the Lancashire County U18 Girls' Doubles' Winter League competition. They achieved a spectacular 100% win record!

The Boys' Division U14s team beat Rivington and Blackrod School 3-1 to win the Town Cup! It was a great game, with the boys playing hard to come out triumphant.

The U15s team was also successful, winning the Town Cup after a tough match versus Thornleigh Salesian College. It was a very close game, with Bolton School coming away with a score of 1-0.

On Thursday, Bolton School hosted its inaugural U15s’ Rugby 7s’ Tournament, with schools from all over the North West taking part. Kirkham Grammar School were the overall winners in the Cup compeition, while QEGS Blackburn took home the Plate, and Rivington and Blackrod School won the Bowl final.

Old Boys and Old Girls came together in London this week for the first ever Alumni Networking Event. Over forty former pupils came together at Cass Business School for a keynote speech from the evening's host, Old Boy Sir Malcolm Williamson, and had a great time mingling and networking with each other over drinks and canapes.

Boys' Division band The Parallel Oreos played at The Market Place in Bolton on Thursday, supporting Debbie Halls-Evans, recent winner of Channel 4's The Taste. She was giving a cooking demonstration while the boys provided excellent musical accompaniment.

The week was rounded off by the Joint Production of Romeo and Juliet. The play was a spectacular modern interpretation of Shakespeare's classic, including a wide variety of songs and modern choreography, and ran for four nights. It was a huge success, and definitely showcased the talents of all the students involved - not to mention the hard work they put in throughout the months of rehearsal!
