"The classic Bolton School combination is hard work, good friends, challenging and thought-provoking teaching, a healthy desire to puncture the self-important and the sense that you can work hard to achieve things in life. "

Boys Try Out the World of Work

Thursday, 28 June 2012

As part of the Careers programme at Bolton School, Year 8 boys took part in a Work Sampling Day

Each boy attended a full day of work with a parent, relative or family friend, in order to develop personal skills, abilities and qualities and to learn about the issues of the workplace. Places of work were varied, including Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, Vernacare (manufacturer of paper based products for the global healthcare market) and Shop Direct Group.

One pupil, Harry Wareing, went to work for Appliances Online - DRL Limited, which is run by an Old Boy, for the day and part of his job on the day was to present a review of a washing machine which can be seen here:
