"I didn’t realise it at the time, but I was greatly inspired by a group of fierce, academic women who taught me at my senior school - Bolton School Girls’ Division."

Sixth Form German students from the Girls’ Division of Bolton School boosted their appreciation of German culture, history and the language during a recent visit to the capital, Berlin.  

The trip was packed full of fun and learning, with everything from a Ritter Sport chocolate workshop and a musical revue, to a trip to the Topography of Terror museum, where they learnt about the rise of National Socialism, and the Reichstag, where the German parliament sits.  

Teacher Ms McQuillan was delighted with how the visit went: “Each girl engaged marvellously with the German language and culture and we are very proud of how they conducted themselves. The girls learnt how to use the Berlin transport system and were our guides for the last day. On one occasion, as we sat enjoying our coffee and cake near the Brandenburg Gate, we saw a number of black limousines with accompanying motorcycles go past, and couldn’t tell whether there was an important politician inside or, perhaps, a movie star, there for the Berlinale Film festival! It didn’t properly sink in how much we’d packed in until afterwards – no wonder the girls were so tired at the end of each day.”
