"I remember my days at school vividly and with great affection. Bolton School has a great tradition in the liberal arts. I've always acted for the love of it and this first love was inspired at Hopefield, the school theatre."

Sir Ian McKellen - Actor and Old Boy

Cubs

Bolton School has a flourishing Scout Group of Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts. The Cub Scout Pack is open to pupils from the Boys' and Girls' Junior Schools aged from approximately eight to ten and a half years old.

The Cub Blog can be found at http://cubs.boltonschool.me/

The termly programme of meetings can be found on the Blog.

The faithful team of voluntary Leaders put on a fun and varied programme each Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6.30 - 8.00pm, at the purpose-built Scout Headquarters - Brookside, at the very bottom of Ladybridge Lane. Occasional weekend trips and other activities are also arranged.

If your son or daughter is currently involved in Scouting we would encourage him to continue with his present Group. If you would be interested in a possible vacancy in the School Cub Scout Pack for your child, please contact Akela via school or return the slip enclosed with the Junior School Joining Information.

If you, as a parent, are able to offer help with the Cub Pack (no experience necessary but you will have to undergo DBS clearance) please let us know.
