School Receives Corporate Heraldry Award

  • Heraldry Society Presentation

Following an application prepared and submitted by Old Boy Malcolm Howe (1948-1956), Bolton School has been awarded the Heraldry Society’s Corporate Heraldry Award. The submission detailed the many and varied ways in which the School has used its armorial bearings to proclaim its identity.  

Former pupil Laura Henthorn (1970-1977) who is Chairman of the Old Girls’ Association, and Old Boy Lionel Price (1954-1964), President of the Old Boltonians’ Association, travelled with Laura Firth, Head of Development at the School, to the Society’s Annual Anniversary Lunch held at The Royal Air Force Club in London. Laura and Lionel received the beautiful hand-painted certificate on behalf of the School from Thomas Woodcock CVO DL FSA, the Garter Principal King of Arms – all are pictured in the above photo. Mr Woodcock lives in Lancashire and along with his wife Lucinda, who descends from the Ainsworths of Smithills Hall, has visited Bolton School.

The School is hugely grateful to the Society for the award and to Malcolm Howe for the time and energy he spent preparing the detailed submission which resulted in this outstanding achievement.
