"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."

Members of the Bolton School Boys’ Division Beekeeping Club were proud to announce that the bees produced a good crop of honey this year, allowing them to open up sales to the school community for a second year. The Beekeeping Club advertised their honey, sold in hexagonal jars with a Bolton School sticker, as a great potential Christmas present, and also good for reducing hay fever symptoms as it contains pollen from the local area.

Pupils extracted the honey from the comb, carefully sieved out any remaining pieces of wax, and decanted the honey into jars over the course of several lunchtimes.

The honey was a very popular purchase for members of staff, who flocked to the science labs to watch club members in action as they jarred their product.

All proceeds from the sale of the honey will go back into the club: it will be used to expand the School’s colonies, provide new colonies to local beekeepers as the club has done in previous years, and make sure that the Bolton School bees survive into long the future.
