"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."

Sir Ian McKellen - Actor and Old Boy

Links With Parents

The partnership between home and school is very important to us and we positively encourage good communication between parents and teachers.

There are four points of contact for most year groups. These events are distributed across the year so that there is at least one in each term:

  • You will be invited to the Consultation Evening when you and your daughter will have the opportunity to discuss her progress with individual members of staff.
  • The year group Information Evenings are for parents only. On these occasions the Headmistress and Staff talk about those aspects of school which are relevant to that particular year group and answer any general questions you may have.
  • Interim reports offer a snapshot of your daughter's progress with attainment grades recorded for all subjects.
  • The annual full report is a longer, more detailed summary which identifies strengths and highlights areas for development.

We actively encourage you to contact the school at any time should you have concerns about any aspect of your daughter's education or wellbeing. You are always welcome to let us know of any problems by making an appointment to see the Head of School (in the first instance) or (for more serious or long term matters) the Headmistress at a mutually convenient time.
