"Recently I won the Mensa Child Genius Competition and I believe that it was possible because of the academic skills and the skills to perform in front of an audience and to keep calm under pressure that I acquired at Hesketh House."

£1.5m Refurbishment for Junior School

Pupils and staff at Bolton School Boys' Division Junior School on Park Road are now benefiting from their refurbished and extended school.  

Junior Boys' Head, Mr Stephen Whittaker, said:

Pupils and staff are really enjoying our new facilities and I know future generations will too.  The extended building, providing larger classrooms, and the refurbished facilities, including the dining hall and a wonderful new library have allowed boys to benefit from the extra space and the very latest equipment.  I am personally delighted with our new-look school; it means we can continue to offer the very best in junior school education in even better accommodation.

The project was completed on 18 May 2009 and the Park Road community is now making full use of their permanent extension to the main school, comprising two Year 6 classrooms, a new library, changing rooms and showers, storage facilities, staff/visitor toilets, staff accommodation and a kitchen and dining hall. 

The official opening ceremony took place on 2 December 2009.
