"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

Bolton School And The Community: Benefiting Each Other

The Bolton School Foundation exists in order to realise the potential of each and every pupil. In order to do this we believe in providing an all-round education, which extends far beyond the classroom. This means that the School is, and always has been, inextricably linked with the local community. It is a central part of our ethos that pupils should be engaged with the real world and that when they leave the School they will make a positive contribution to society. It is through the interaction with local, national and international concerns that pupils learn about topical issues and develop a sense of their place in the world. Many also develop a benevolence which stays with them throughout their lives.

Whilst our pupils learn from their interactions with the outside world, the School, in turn, engages with and benefits the local, national and international community in myriad ways. The following pages (with links below) detail some of the recent work undertaken by pupils, staff and ex-pupils of the School.
