Excellent and Outstanding
Bolton School Girls' Division has been celebrating after being named "excellent" and "outstanding" in the Independent Schools Inspectorate's report. Throughout the whole school pupils' personal development was found to be exceptional, the culture was described as one in which pupils have a desire to learn and make progress, and children of all ages were seen to be involved and to learn cooperatively with their teachers and with each other.
More congratulations are in order in the Boys' Division as a team of pupils called 'The Recyclopaths' have been awarded second place in the National Final of the Toyota Technology Challenge, with their environmentally friendly robot 'The WEEE-Madillo'!
Also this week the Boys' Division hosted a Maths Challenge day for local Primary Schools to help get young people involved in Maths in a fun way. Twenty one Primary School teams took part in the Harry Potter themed challenge, which consisted of a series of different mathematic activities including creating their own Hogwart's Tower!
Year 3 pupil Lizzie Crowther has become the Bolton School Junior Girls' Young Photographer of the Year! Lizzie won the Junior Girls' photography competition with her photos which included a self-portrait photograph in a London tube station, where she cleverly used a convex mirror for effect. Also in Junior Girls this week the Year 5’s got to spend a day in the life of a Tudor by taking part in a Hautbois Workshop.
