8th November 2013

The first week in November was all about visitors and awards.

Former Girls’ Division pupil Lizzie Foster returned to Bolton School to speak to Year 12 students about her career at the BBC, as part of their PSHE programme.
Lizzie attended the Girls’ Division Sixth Form from 1987-1989. She currently works at the new Media City Centre, producing documentaries and quizzes for Radio 4, having previously worked on TV programmes such as Mastermind and A Question of Sport.

Another visitor, Gisle Krogseth, gave a free lunchtime Classical Guitar Recital/Lecture at Bolton School Arts Centre.  Gisle is a leading Norwegian guitarist and composer. He spoke about his life as a musician and played some of his own compositions including “Runes” and “Sonatina dell’ Adriatico” for the audience.

The Russian and German Departments at Bolton School Boys’ Division have each received a prestigious Good Schools' Guide Award for their performance at A Level. The honours were received in the A Level Awards 2012 for the best results achieved by boys at an English School at AS Level.
Bolton School played host to the regional final of the National Chess Team Challenge for Secondary Schools. Seven schools took part including teams from Bolton School Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions, making up 14 teams of 4. The afternoon tournament lasted around two hours and consisted of four rounds each lasting 25 minutes.
