Thoughts on Hesketh House

What the children think

Hesketh House is a heart-warming and happy environment, which supports learning and development to the highest levels. The children are welcoming to all, and the teachers are caring and suppoprtive. Since being at Bolton School, my Mum thinks, "Wow, my daughter is a different child!" Bolton School has changed my view of school in every possible way! The sports curriculum is amazing and the classroom facilities are great. I love it!

When I first went to Bolton School, I was quite nervous but it wasn't that nerve-wracking at all. I met so many friends, I felt that they had been my friends forever! I settled in well and now I know where everything is. I have done so many exciting and interesting things. I love Bolton School!

 

What the parents think

Our daughter thoroughly enjoys Hesketh House and all the opportunities which it affords to the students. We have found the school to be caring, approachable and to provide an excellent environment.

Hesketh House is truly a one-of-a-kind place. Highly skilled, helpful and reflective staff across the school provide a very high quality of learning.

Hesketh House balanced academic rigour with a sense of fun. This is achieved both by a supportive and encouraging environment fostered by every member of staff, and also an extensive range of opportunities which allow every girl to find her passions and talents. At Hesketh House, it seems every girl feels comfortable in her skin yet never rests on her laurels.

We would like to say that, as parents, we really value the school's adherence to traditional values and its empowerment of the individual.

My family has always found that the teachers at Hesketh House care deeply about the welfare and academic achievements of their pupils, and are quick to respond to any concerns. Additionally, the breadth of extra-curricular opportunities has been invaluable to my daughter's development.

Hesketh House is a magical place of adventure, discovery, learning, friendship and joy. The girls, albeit within a modern, disciplined, hard-working atmosphere, appear each evening as though sprinkled with fairy dust. Eventually, as they leave for Seniors, they emerge as butterflies from their chrysalises.

We have had absolute trust that the care and support our daughter needed would be there for her - which is a wonderful feeling! She has grown in confidence and independence and loves to learn. We have all enjoyed her time at Hesketh House - there is a very real partnership between home and school in fostering learning.

I can't begin to tell you how much our daughter has gained from Hesketh House and how much we appreciate everyone's involvement. Her individual learning needs have been recognised and she received the support she needed to grow as a person, too.

The most enjoyable aspect of Hesketh House's environment is that no day is ever the same and never a dull moment.

My daughter has learned a tremendous amount that will definitely make her an enthusiastic, responsible and reliable person in her future career.

Hesketh House - a place of no regrets.
