The Best of Both Worlds
Bolton School is a family of schools, where children can enjoy an all-through education, joining our co-educational Nursery, Nursery Class for 3 and 4 Year Olds or Infant School before moving up to our single-sex Junior and Senior Schools with Sixth Forms. We are strong believers that girls and boys from 7+ perform best in a single-sex environment, but one where there are co-educational activities - the best of both worlds.
Inspiring Young Minds
We welcome young girls and boys, aged 7 and 8, into our junior schools. They become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens as they develop through academic excellence and a wide range of extra-curricular activities. The children pictured here are enjoying a workshop with Nobel Prize Winner and Old Boy, Sir Harry Kroto. Almost all pupils progress to our Senior Schools. To learn about joining us in Year 3 or Year 4, call 01204 840201.
Whilst Bolton School is an academic school, our size allows us to develop the whole child through a vast range of extra-curricular opportunities, clubs, societies and trips, including visits to our own outdoor pursuits centre in the Lake District. The student body is diverse, both socially and geographically, one in five pupils receives fee assistance and our coach service covers 22 routes.
"Outstanding" Early Years
Pupils may join Bolton School at an early age, enrolling in our co-educational Nursery, Nursery Class for 3 and 4 Year Olds or Infant School (ages 4-7). Our Early Years Foundation Stage recently received the rare achievement of being graded outstanding on every level. From Infant School, the majority of pupils go on to either our Girls' or Boys' Junior Schools. **We are now interviewing children for entry into Reception Class 2014 - call 01204 434759 for details**
Stunning New Sixth Form Centre
Bolton School’s new, state of the art Riley Sixth Form Centre provides the best of both worlds for students. Work on the £7m build was completed over the summer and students have been utilsing the outstanding facility since the start of the Autumn Term. You can view a diary of photographs recording its construction here.
