"Bolton School was such a large part of my life. I can safely say that I would not be doing what I do for a living if it wasn’t for the vibrant arts scene at the school and the encouragement that I was given."

Neil Eckersley, Former Pupil and Theatre Producer

Much of the material herewith is copied from various editions of the Boltonian magazine 1899-2011, for which we owe thanks to many authors.

About half of the material has been written specially for this publication, and names or initials of the authors are usually appended.

The general editing has been by David Allen (Boys' Division Staff, 1957-1993) who has been responsible for the general format and detail, and accepts any mistakes and errors are his own fault.  He will be grateful for advice and corrections of fact from those actually involved.

The IT adviser has been Quentin Jefferies, to whom a debt of gratitude beyond belief is owed.
