"Three years ago I was undereducated, underachieving and underestimated. The bursary at Bolton School meant that I had a chance at changing my life. It offered me new blueprints for the future, and I saw endless possibilities."

Town Centre Display for Junior Boys’ Artwork

Wednesday, 26 February 2014

Stunning artwork from forty eight Junior Boys at Bolton School is currently being displayed in the The Market Place in Bolton town centre. 

The Year 6 boys, having received tuition and guidance from their specialist Art, Design and Technology teacher Mr Dickinson, produced the colourful acrylic landscape paintings as part of their Art curriculum. As in previous years, the work proved so good it was displayed first in the School’s Arts Centre for parents and friends and then in the Upper Hall of Bolton’s Market Place, where it will remain until mid-March. 

10 year old Tom Simpson said: “It has been a great experience and a bit of a journey. Sometimes you go wrong but this is all part of the learning experience. I have learnt some new techniques and I like Art so I look forward to learning more about the subject in Senior School." 

Tom also played his part in an Art Committee, which was made up of Alfie Birkett, Amaan Broughton, Jude Hill and Tom.  Alfie explained: “We basically took care of the exhibition at the School’s Arts Centre, booking a slot for it and organising the refreshments for parents.”
