Bolton’s Britannica School Quiz – Now Live!

Britannica has now been in our schools for six months, the feedback from teachers and pupils has been really positive. To celebrate this and to encourage more use across all our schools, we are launching this Spring’s half term competition.

Encourage your students to dig deeper and test their knowledge via Britannica’s Bolton Quiz #BritannicaBQuiz. We’re offering the chance for four lucky entrants to each win £25 worth of Amazon vouchers. All students need to do is to answer the ten questions correctly to enter the draw. The Quiz is suitable for all levels, from KS1 to KS4, and it will test them on different subjects, all available in Britannica School.


The closing date is Thursday 29th March and the winners of each Key Stage will be notified first week back after the Easter holidays.
