The Sixth Form

Sixth Form life is different from that in the rest of the school!

Students wear their own clothes and have their own accommodation in the newly built Riley Sixth Form Centre, which is shared with the Boys' Division. This shared space is located at the hearts of the school, and gives independence to more than 400 Sixth Form students. It contains an ICT suite, seminar rooms with touch-screen tvs, quiet study areas, a common room, a refectory cafe area, and exhibition space.

Full school lunches are still provided but many students choose to collect a snack lunch from the Dining Room at morning break to eat at their leisure with their friends in the Common Room.

Students are allowed out of school at lunchtime and during two nominated times each week. 

Students also take on more responsibilities within school by running clubs and societies, acting as school guides and helping out at lunchtimes. At the end of the second term in Year 12 the Senior Prefects and Head Girls are elected by all the members of their year group and the staff. Highlights of Year 13 include the Prefects' Panto which takes place every Christmas, and the production of a beautifully bound, glossy Yearbook as a memento of the girls' time at Bolton School.
