Boys' Division: 67% of Entries A* or A.
Once again students of Bolton School Boys' Division have
performed outstandingly well in their GCSEs. Just over 67% of all
grades were either A* or A and an impressive 33.8% of all papers
were graded at A*. All boys passed at least 5 subjects (including
English and Maths) with A*-C grades. The total pass rate at
A*-C was 97.7%. Nine pupils achieved 10A* each and 30.5% of boys
achieved 10A* or A grades.
I am delighted with the GCSE results. They are a real test of
the ability of boys to organise study across a wide range of
subjects before they specialise and so it is pleasing to see such
broad based success - 30% of boys have A* and A in all the subjects
they studied and 70% have 5 or more passes at A* or A grade. One
highlight for me this year is music, which is one obvious area
where our activities and academic work overlap - every boy who
studied music got an A* or A grade.

Girls' Division: 38% of Entries A*
The Girls' Division of Bolton School is celebrating another
excellent year for GCSE results, which has seen the percentage of
entries marked at A* jumping to 38%. Seventy three per cent of
entries were graded A* or A. Eight girls got the "full set" of
10A*s. The total pass rate at A*-C was 99%.
We are delighted with these results which reflect the hard work
put in by students, staff and their supportive parents. There were
many individual pupil and departmental success stories but I was
pleased to see how well girls had done in subjects that many
schools do not offer - for instance all girls that took Latin this
year got an A* or A grade.
