Our Teachers

The Boys' Junior Department teaching staff is comprised of 10 highly experienced and dedicated teachers who all have their own subject specialism together with two part-time support staff; this has resulted in a high level of expertise, creating a broad and rich curriculum shaped to reflect the ethos, aims and values of Bolton School.

We are an extremely hardworking team who recognise and support each other's unique input in to the Junior School curriculum.

All teaching staff emphasise a positive attitude to work and other individuals, offering encouragement when a pupil struggles to understand as well as when he has performed well or has worked especially hard.We prioritise independence in learning and the acquisition of life-long learning skills in an environment of excellence.Over the course of a boy's time in the Junior School he will be taught by all the members of the staff team.

The form teacher is the person of central importance in the life of any single pupil offering friendship and support as well as presenting a clear disciplinary response when necessary.  Regular staff discussion ensures a high level of pastoral care is achieved.

Our well qualified staff provide a disciplined and caring environment where the boys develop as considerate individuals able to move forward into secondary education with confidence.
