12 May 2017

Boys' Division chemistry teacher Dr Kristy Turner, who also teaches at the University of Manchester, is the Royal Society of Chemistry Schools Education Award winner for 2017. This is awarded to someone who has demonstrated an exceptional ability to teach chemistry and inspire students at any pre-university level.

Nineteen Junior Boys have had their work selected for the second round of judging in the 500 Words writing competition organised by BBC Radio 2 and Chris Evans. They are among just 5,000 children who have been chosen for the next round from over 131,000 initial entries - an excellent achievement!

Year 7 pupil Anupam has recently competed in a national table tennis competition. He represented Greater Manchester Schools in the U13s competition, winning two out of three group matches.

The Bolton School Bake Off Final took place this week, with the four finalists creating 'showstopper' bakes to impress the judges. Baking to a strict time limit and coming up with creative and delicious products, all four girls excelled, but the eventual winner for the second year running was Yasmin with yet another spectacular cake.

The Junior Boys were treated to a wonderful lunchtime concert from their teachers, Mrs Ives and Miss Ormerod. They listened to music on the viola, recorder and bassoon as well as some singing.

The Sixth Form Boys have raised over £1000 for three charities with a fun walk event. The money will be split between the Alzheimer's Society, Barnardo’s and Anthony Nolan, the UK's blood cancer charity.

Children at Bolton School Nursery have also been fundraising with their Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk! All of the Nursery children enjoyed a messy obstacle course on the Boys' Division sports field, splashing through puddles and squelching through mud to raise money for Save the Children. Over £1000 was donated to the cause through this event.

Old Boy John Craven gave a talk on investment banking to the Sixth Form boys. The event was facilitated by a WebEx link, allowing him to address the group from his London office. The talk was interesting and varied, and gave insight into career prospects in the world of banking and finance.

The Junior Girls sent a team of Year 5 pupils to the AJIS Biathlon competition at Rossall School. The six girls performed well in both events and won first place overall!

Six students in the Sixth Form and four Old Boys were key players for Bolton RUFC U18s in their Colts League Shield Final against Tarleton at the weekend. The Bolton School lads helped the town team to victory with a final score of 18-15.

The Year 6 pupils from the Junior Girls' School are at Patterdale Hall this week. They captured one of their eggs-citing challenges on film - watch it here or click the play button below!

On 19 May at 7pm, Bolton School will host a free talk about Squadron Leader Roger Bushell, the man behind "The Great Escape". Simon Pearson has written a book about the remarkable life and death of The Great Escaper, and will share his insights during this event. The talk has been organised to support the Great Britain Junior (U19) Water Polo squad, which includes many Boys' Division pupils, and a collection will be held at the end.
