"When I return to Bolton School to talk to pupils about entrepreneurship, my message is to 'go for it'. This is an attitude that I had instilled in me during my time at the school where my curiosity was fuelled and I became interested in ideas."

Much of the material herewith is copied from various editions of the Boltonian magazine 1899-2011, for which we owe thanks to many authors.

About half of the material has been written specially for this publication, and names or initials of the authors are usually appended.

The general editing has been by David Allen (Boys' Division Staff, 1957-1993) who has been responsible for the general format and detail, and accepts any mistakes and errors are his own fault.  He will be grateful for advice and corrections of fact from those actually involved.

The IT adviser has been Quentin Jefferies, to whom a debt of gratitude beyond belief is owed.
