100 Inspiring Minds

During 2015-16, we will be profiling some of the most inspiring and influential people from Bolton School’s history.

Some of those profiled will have made an impact on society, shaping our businesses and communities, and some have devoted their lifelong careers to the School and its pupils.

From May 2015 onwards, a new profile of an inspiring mind will be posted each week so don't forget to keep coming back! We started with Lord Leverhulme, followed by former Heads Mr Poskitt and Miss Higginson; you can view the profiles here
