Monday was a VERY SPECIAL DAY!

23 May 2017 (by admin)

On Monday, we were extremely lucky to have Bolton's New Mayor, Cllr Roger Hayes, visiting our school to present us with an award!

The Mayor and Mayoress took time out of their busy first week in office to attend a very special assembly in which he presented our head boy and girl with our new Gold Artsmark Award.

Pikes Lane School are one of the only schools in the country to meet the new standards and are currently the only school in Bolton to hold the award.

The Mayor heard all about the fantastic opportunities that the pupils are given to engage with the arts and was treated to a performance by the school choir. He also spoke to the pupils about the importance of recognising and pursuing their talents beyond the academic subjects.

The Gold Artsmark is an award for schools who demonstrate their commitment to embedding arts and cultural provision at the heart of their school. Well done to all of those involved!
