There are a number of opportunities for parents to become involved in the broader life of the school. These include attending sporting events, drama productions and formal and informal concerts. You can also become more actively involved, for example by acting as hosts to your daughter's foreign exchange partners, offering placements for work experience and work sampling and, of course, by joining the Parents' Association.
The Association runs a number of events throughout the year. The PA also welcomes offers of help with stewarding for Consultation Evenings, an activity which helps the smooth running of these important occasions.
The Association also awards scholarships to girls in Years 7-11 for individual ventures during the holidays and helps to fund improvements within school.
The Chair of the Association for 2012-2013 is Laura Henthorn. Read Laura's views on Bolton School. A member of the Parents' Association Committee also serves as Parent Governor. The current holder of this post is Amanda Valentine.
