"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

Head of Bolton School Boys Division, Philip Britton

Bolton School has a long and distinguished history of providing an outstanding all round education.

We have high aspirations for all our boys and provide an environment in which they can achieve them. An education at Bolton School will enable your son to identify and cultivate his own special interests and talents, develop a sense of intellectual curiosity and achieve excellent academic results.

Ours is a vibrant community where your son will be happy and make life-long friends. He will become a confident, eloquent and considerate young man, who will be well prepared to make his way in the world and make a difference for good.

Our website pages can only offer a glimpse of what we can offer your son. We would be delighted to provide you with a tour of the school, so that you are able to see at first hand what a truly exceptional education Bolton School provides.
