"There is such a relaxed atmosphere in school, especially in the Sixth Form - all the teachers put in all their efforts to help get you through your exams, make the right university and career choices, and for you to reach your full potential."

Scholarships

A number of new Scholarships are available to pupils entering either the Girls’ or Boys’ Division in Year 7. These generous Scholarships are not means-tested and are awarded to those pupils who, we believe, will make a strong contribution to the academic and wider life of the School.  

Half and full organ scholarships are available in the Boys' Division - further details can be found here.

Separately, the School continues to offer generous bursary support to those who need fee assistance. Currently one in five of our pupils between the ages of 11 and 18 receives bursary support. You can find more details on bursaries here.

The Scholarships are offered at the discretion of the Headmistress or Headmaster following the Bolton School Entrance Examination and Interview. You can find out more details about our Entrance Testing Day here

Further information and application forms to sit our Entrance Examination are available from Hannah Caulfield (Girls’ Division: seniorgirls@boltonschool.org) or Susan Yates (Boys’ Division: seniorboys@boltonschool.org) on 01204 840201 or by visiting the web page: www.boltonschool.org/entrance-examination.
