There is a strong tradition of taking active part in service to the community and fundraising for charity. As part of the Community Action Programme you can visit the elderly, assist in hospitals or hospices, or go into local primary schools to help children with their reading.
You can help in school by running Clubs and Societies for younger girls, looking after our Infant children in the morning and at lunchtime, helping in the school libraries, serving on the Common Room Committee or the School Council or lending a sympathetic ear in our confidential 'listening service'.
In addition, there are one-off projects such as the Harvest Festival and the Christmas Shoebox Campaign, which involve the whole School. For the past two years, the Sixth Form have also been very active in helping a local Christmas Hamper project. In the past two years, the girls have gathered together a huge stack of Christmas puddings, mince pies and Christmas biscuits through ingenious fund-raising methods.
All girls in the Lower Sixth are expected to complete at least twenty hours’ of Community Service alongside their studies - and many do far more! At the end of the year, there is a Celebration Evening for those girls who have achieved the highest number of hours.
"The range of extra-curricular activities at Bolton School provides countless opportunities for students to establish friendships and develop new skills. Over the years, I have enjoyed participating in various sports teams, music ensembles and other societies which have all enabled me to gain a variety of achievements and successes. Whether sporty, musical, creative or academic, Bolton School will undoubtedly provide something for everyone."
