Bolton School Girls Go Gold
Monday, 12 September 2022
No sooner had Term begun than fifteen Year 11 athletes from the Girls’ Division of Bolton School were on their way to Wycombe Abbey School to attend this year’s GSA Girls Go Gold Sports Conference.
A total of 350 pupils in Years 10-13 from 26 independent girls’ schools across the country enjoyed a superb day of sports based activities. Practical workshops for lacrosse, rugby, cricket, netball and fitness delivered by specialist coaches in their field proved very popular. There were also opportunities to experience first-hand what a career in sports media and presenting entails along with tips for managing the demands of being an elite athlete, alongside the pressure of sitting GCSE and A level exams.
Keynote addresses from Professor Greg Whyte and Sue Anstiss MBE provided a lively debate about measures for the levelling up of opportunities for girls in sport.
