"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."

Girls Ranked 65th in the Country

Tuesday, 06 September 2011

Bolton School Girls' Division is the 65th best Independent School in the country, according to the Daily Telegraph GCSE result rankings. The table is based on the percentage of subject entries graded A* and A, and puts the school easily within the top 100.

In the Telegraph A Level results table, published the previous week, the Girls' Division again fared well and placed at 123rd in the rankings. In the Manchester Evening News A Level league table for Independent Schools, the School was ranked fourth in the region.

Headmistress, Miss Sue Hincks, said:  "I am absolutely delighted that the girls of Bolton School have done so well. Their success is a reflection of their intelligence and their hard work as well as the inspiration and commitment of their teachers. I am particularly pleased because these results are a tribute to my predecessor, Gill Richards, who has just retired as Headmistress.  League tables do not tell the whole story, however, and our girls are distinguished by their personal qualities. Their lives are rich in achievement, experience and extra-curricular interests. They are now ready for further success in their A levels, university application and future lives."

The Boys' Division also did well, ranking at 160 in the Telegraph GCSE table and 202 in the A Level table. They were placed 6th in the Greater Manchester league table.
