As ever, the Bolton School Boys’ Division Y7 Gymnastics Final delivered and outstanding routines involving travelling movements and balances as boys exhibited calmness under pressure. In front of the entire year group and Form teachers, the 9 finalists performed eight piece sequences; all finalists having won through earlier rounds, when all boys in the year group had performed six sequence routines. 

Head of PE Mr Johnson said: “This year’s final was a very close affair, with the finalists completing a sequence learnt in their curriculum PE lessons. The boys coped remarkably well in front of a large audience. In the end there was a deserved winner”. 

The judging panel was given a tough task as each pupil performed an almost flawless routine. The eventual winner was Joe Nicholson, who was given one of the oldest cups in the School, the competition having run for well over 100 years. Mrs Brandon, Deputy Head, handed out second prize to Nathan Watts and the bronze medal to Harry Butler. All boys received a certificate for making it to the final.
