"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."

School Community Trading

In these challenging economic times many of you will be interested to hear that school community trading is booming with sites such as http://www.schoolstrader.com/uk/independent, the free-ads website, to buy/sell anything from a puppy to a piano.

Schoolstrader is the UK's leading school community trading website for the independent sector, where parents, staff and alumni can trade with each other free of charge - everything from pets to holiday homes, bikes to musical instruments.

The site was featured recently in The Sunday Times, Which and Channel 4 News online and as a Top 50 website in The Daily Telegraph. It covers most independent school communities across the UK including ours.
