"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 Continue Chemquiz Winning Streak

Monday, 26 June 2017

  • Chemquiz - team receiving trophy
  • Chemquiz - team with trophy

A team of pupils from the Boys’ Division have won the Greater Manchester Chemquiz for the second year running! James Leese-Weller in Year 10, Thomas Yates in Year 9, and Year 8 pupils Ali Ahmed and Arsh Patankar defended the School’s title in the competition this year.

The team excelled in all three sections of the competition. They achieved second place in the practical activity, took third place in the multi-media activity, and in the quiz round were second, coming in just behind the Girls’ Division team, who placed first in that section.

The four boys’ overall performance won them first place in the competition, which featured 42 schools. They will now go forward to represent Greater Manchester in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s national Top of the Bench competition in the next academic year.

Last year’s team went on to win the Top of the Bench competition for the School.
