Alumni from both Divisions returned to Bolton School as the summer term drew to a close. A large group of Old Boys and Old Girls joined current Year 12 students in the Arts Centre to talk about life after A Levels.

A question and answer session with a panel of recent leavers allowed Sixth Formers to find out more about university. The tips and advice including saying yes to everything, getting involved with sports teams and societies, learning to cook before leaving home, and not being afraid to phone parents for help and a chat. Year 12 students were then invited to talk more informally with the visiting alumni about their experiences after leaving Bolton School. They were split into five groups: Medical Sciences; Law, Humanities and Social Sciences; Arts and Languages; Engineering, Applied Sciences and Maths; and Gap Year, Degree Apprenticeships and Employment.

This was a great opportunity for students to find out first-hand about the step up from A Level and what university, apprenticeships and employment are actually like.

The afternoon ended with a drinks reception attended by the Class of 2018. This after-school reunion in the Leverhulme Suite of the Riley Sixth Form Centre gave the youngest of Bolton School’s Old Girls and Old Boys the chance to catch up with their classmates and former teachers and share their exploits since leaving Bolton School last summer.
