Bolton School Senior Girls

Girls Go Gold Conference 2014

In September 2014, Bolton School hosted the northern Girls Go Gold Conference.

Bolton School welcomed two hundred girls aged 14-17 who had travelled from across the UK for the conference, which was mirrored in the south at St Catherine’s Bramley. The day included talks and practical sessions from a variety of expert speakers from the world of sport: athletes, journalists, and specialists in sports injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Read a review of the day here, and a girl's perspective on the conference here.
