"The best thing I can say of the school was that it worked. It embedded in me habits of reading and thinking as well as an enduring curiosity about just about everything."

School is Now Accessible to the Fylde

Tuesday, 24 January 2012

We are delighted to announce that from September of this year we will be offering a new coach route from Blackpool and Kirkham to Bolton School. 

As a result of increased demand, the new route will bring pupils into Bolton School from the Fylde by coach for the first time.  There will be pick-ups at Blackpool and Kirkham before the coach then fills up at Fulwood, Preston and travels directly into School.

For those wishing to make the journey into School by train, there will also be a separate mini-bus service which will pick up and drop off at Lostock Station, making the School accessible by train from Blackpool, Kirkham and Preston and, also, from Salford and Manchester.

Pupils who wish to board a Bolton School coach from central Blackburn will also be able to do so for the first time as the current Darwen bus will start its journey a little earlier and will pick pupils up from Ewood Park in central Blackburn.

Currently almost half of our pupils, including some from our junior schools, utilise our exclusive coach service and the school day is organised so that pupils travelling into school can take full advantage of our extra-curricular provision.

From September onwards, the School will run a total of 23 coach routes across the North-West.  

For further details about any of these new coach routes, please call 01204 434711 or to discuss enrolling your child at Bolton School call 01204 840201.
