Welcome from the Head of Foundation
Welcome to Bolton School.
We are a large, all-through independent day school set on a stunning 32 acre campus, a mile or so out of the town centre of Bolton.
Which ever part of our Foundation you are interested in – be it our co-educational Nursery, Pre-School Class or Infant School or one of our single-sex Junior and Senior Schools – our aim is for every girl and boy to become the best that they can be.
Academic rigour is important to us but so too is character development, which we encourage through delivering a wide range of activities and experiences, including engagement in and with our local community, as well as through outstanding pastoral care. We are also strong believers in the benefits of outdoor education and all our pupils make regular visits to our adventure learning centre, Patterdale Hall, in the Lake District.
An integral part of our mission is to widen access to our outstanding education and to offer genuine social mobility to young people across the region. Ever since our re-foundation by Lord Leverhulme, we have sought to offer children of high potential the best possible education, irrespective of their financial circumstances. Currently, one in five of our Senior School pupils receives a bursary to help cover the costs of their studies and, of these, half enjoy full fee support. Our ethnic make-up mirrors that of our catchment area and, through an extensive coach network covering 20 routes, we draw pupils from across the North West.
Please do look through our web pages: there is lots to see and they will give you a sense of what we are about, but the best way to truly appreciate our School is to come and visit us.
