"There is no doubt this is a very special school with fantastic facilities and fantastic teachers who make all the difference. It's just a shame that every school in the country cannot be like Bolton School."

Boys Enjoy Swim Tour to Malta

Friday, 04 November 2011

Over the half term holiday twenty one Bolton School boys headed off to Malta for a full week of intense swim training!

The boys, from Year 8 up to Year 11, were accompanied on the swim tour by PE staff Mr Howard, Mr Windsor and Mr Hughes, who put them through their paces with two 2 hour swim sessions a day. Their days involved waking up at 6am to a healthy breakfast, followed by a 2 mile walk to the national stadium swimming pool. It wasn't all hard work though as the boys then had free time and a leisurely lunch before returning to the pool for their afternoon session.

The evenings were dedicated to fun activities, including bowling and a movie night, and the boys also had time off in the day to explore the local area and shops, visit the Malta Experience, take a boat tour around Valletta, and watch the premier league football in the movie room! Although the trip was intense, the weather was fantastic and there were many fun times - the boys really enjoyed it all!

The trip was a great success and will definitely go ahead again in the future. All the boys gained a great amount of fitness and vastly improved on their swimming skills.
