Two Y12 girls at Bolton School Girls’ Division have won first and second place in this year’s national YPO Art Competition. Overcoming hundreds of entries from across the country, Muryum Binte Fahad won the overall competition and Georgia Barnes placed second. 

The winning prize included £250 for the School Art Department to spend with YPO, which offers products and services to schools, charities and local authorities. The Sixth Form girls also received a hamper of art goodies and colouring pencils. 

Passing on his congratulations, Nicholas Moore of YPO said: ‘The two students are a true credit to your school and this is the first time we’ve had a winner and runner up from the same school – they are really talented artists!’
