It’s a new year and a new term and our Junior Girls have been getting to grips with the latest technology, in the form of Augmented Reality books! These interactive books are the latest addition to the well stocked library and the girls are having fun meeting dinosaurs, making pirates walk the plank, and holding fairies in the palm of their hands!
Four Bolton School pupils have done exceptionally well to have been identified as potential players of the future by the Lancashire Cricket Board in the 2012 Levels of Excellence. Year 10 pupils Haseeb Hameed and Matthew Parkinson have been named as Academy players, a rare achievement for such young players, putting them in the top 11 in the North West outside having a contract with the Club. Matthew's twin Callum has been chosen for the EPP (Emerging Players Programme), along with Year 9 pupil Nalisha Patel from the Girls' Division. And former Sixth Form student Will Burrow has received an Excellence in Geography at A Level Award from the Royal Geographical Society. The awards are granted to only the very highest achievers in A Level and GCSE examinations and Will received a cash prize and certificate. Our Business Studies students were lucky enough to be given financial advice from Justin Urquhart Stewart this week - Marketing Director and co-founder of Seven Investment Management, and one of the most recognisable and trusted market commentators. Justin spoke to the whole of the Boys' Division Sixth Form and Sixth Form Business students from the Girls' Division for 15 minutes before a more in depth presentation to the Business students only. He shared his wealth of knowledge with the students and offered a calm, clear-sighted view of the current economic climate for Britain and the rest of the world, along with advice on pensions and how to manage finances and university debt.
