School Ranked Amongst Best in Country

Tuesday, 31 August 2010

The Daily Telegraph's 2010 ranking of independent schools by A level results has placed Bolton School Boys' Division as 62nd best school in the country and the Girls' Division as 79th.  The table reflects the percentage of A level grades at A* and A.  63.64% of Boys' Division subject entries and 61.85% of Girls' Division subject entries fell into this category. The results place the School amongst the best in the North-West and comfortably place both divisions of the school in the top 10 independent schools in the North of England.

I am delighted at how well our students have performed at A level and the results reflect how hard they and their tutors have worked.  However, academic league tables reflect only part of the Bolton School story as our offer encompasses a wide variety of extra-curricular and social activities which helps build rounded, self-confident young people Headmaster, Mr Philip Britton
