Pupils from Bolton School have won prestigious translation awards.

A number of pupils in both the Boy’s Division and Girls’ Division have recently taken part in the Anthea Bell Prize for Young Translators, a language translation competition organised by Queen’s College in Oxford.

As part of the competition the pupils had a go at translating language extracts at varying levels in French, German, Italian, Mandarin and Spanish.

And from their hard work and determination, several pupils have been awarded.
