"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. "

Girls Commended in Magistrates Competition

Thursday, 03 February 2011

The work of several Bolton School Girls is on display in the foyer of Bolton's Magistrates' Court, after they received commendations in the Magistrates' 650th Anniversary Competition for the Borough of Greater Manchester.

Back in July 2010, Year 6 girls entered the competition in which they had to create a written or artistic piece of work to commemorate 650 years of magistrates' service. Most girls chose to write a poem or design a poster. Anushka Basu, Emma Duper, Penny Roberts, Rebecca Calderbank, Letitia Sermin-Reed, Olivia Porter, Francesca Adams and Georgina Owen all received commendations for their work and Daisy Forshaw was the overall winner.

The girls were Year 6 pupils at the time and with the exception of Daisy have now moved on to Senior School. Daisy now attends school in York. As part of their English/ PHSE programme the junior girls have close links with local magistrates who visit the school to teach the girls more about their role in the community.
