YOUNG people were put through their paces by Commando Joe.

Bolton School Year 10 girls developed their problem-solving, team-working, leadership and communication skills through a series of military-type exercises.

The programme was delivered by Commando Joe's, an organisation designed to develop key skills among pupils.

The girls took part in physical outdoor challenges as well as indoor exercises in which the pupils worked as part of a team.

The group was said to have built "transferable" skills and had a lot of fun at the same time.
