"The best thing I can say of the school was that it worked. It embedded in me habits of reading and thinking as well as an enduring curiosity about just about everything."

A large number of pupils from Bolton School Girls’ Division have once again participated in the British Science Association’s Crest Awards, which involves undertaking a science based project of their own choosing. A group of Year 8 pupils and three groups of Year 9 pupils completed their Bronze award, which involves a minimum of 10 hours work, and two groups of Year 9s earned Silver Awards with 30 hours of individual scientific work. 

Bronze group projects revolved around various themes including fingerprints, making bath bombs, making and testing lipstick and investigating antiacids whilst the Silver awards were for projects on building an eco-house and researching natural and anti-bacterial products. On completion of their work, girls presented their findings to Mr David Ward, the regional Crest Coordinator. 

Each year, over 32,000 CREST Awards are undertaken by 11-to-19-year-olds, giving them opportunities to explore real-world science, technology, engineering and maths projects in an exciting way.
