"When I return to Bolton School to talk to pupils about entrepreneurship, my message is to 'go for it'. This is an attitude that I had instilled in me during my time at the school where my curiosity was fuelled and I became interested in ideas."

Caroline Plumb - CEO of Fresh Minds and youngest woman on Management Today's '35 under 35' list

The Best of Both Worlds

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. The best way to appreciate our school is to visit us on Open Morning - Saturday 11 October, 9.30am-1.00pm.

Inspiring Young Minds

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. Almost all pupils progress to our Senior Schools. To learn about joining us in Year 3 or Year 4, call 01204 840201.

Senior Schools

Senior Schools

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

"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.
