Year 6 girls at Hesketh House, Bolton School’s Junior Girls’ School have been improving their bike riding and road awareness capabilities by taking part in the Bikeability programme run by Bolton Council.

The course in cycling proficiency is designed for pupils who can already ride a bike and after a morning in the playground learning manoeuvring and hand signals, the girls were out on local roads in the afternoon and during the following day.

Headteacher Mrs Carol Laverick was delighted with how well the course had gone: ‘Our girls have had great fun, improving their riding techniques whilst developing their road awareness and general road safety skills. The programme also helps encourage a healthy lifestyle, boost confidence and develop independence.’
