"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

Girls' Division Junior School

Head of Bolton School Junior Girls' Division, Ruth Brierley

A very warm welcome to the Girls' Division Junior School website. We like to think of our school as a friendly and happy place, buzzing with activity and positive energy! The atmosphere here is very supportive and purposeful, and this is what underpins our pupils' successes in all fields—academic study, sport and music.

Although Bolton School is an academic institution, we are very realistic in our approach, recognising that individuals have different strengths. We provide a wide range of opportunities for our pupils to make the most of their particular talents both within the curriculum and in the many exciting activities which take place outside the classroom.

Underlying everything that we do is a set of simple but far-reaching values: an understanding and respect for others, a sense of responsibility, the importance of self belief, and a realisation that we all depend on each other.

We are proud to be part of a School which combines a strong sense of tradition with real innovation. Our philosophy in the Junior School is a simple one: Do your best in all things, whether in work or in play. Seize the day!

We hope that you enjoy looking at our web pages. If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01204 434761. We will always be delighted to talk to you.

Mrs Ruth Brierley
Head of the Junior School
