  • One mum in a family with three generations of Boltonian men said, 'You can't better this school - it's belting', and we are inclined to agree.

    Good Schools Guide Review
  • The outstanding range of interesting and stimulating extra curricular activities provide excellent opportunities for pupils to take initiative and extend their capabilities. Throughout the school the personal development of pupils is exceptional.

  • I remember my days at school vividly and with great affection. Bolton School has a great tradition in the liberal arts. I've always acted for the love of it and this first love was inspired at Hopefield, the school theatre.

  • Many schools in England seem to neglect physical education but not here at Bolton School.

  • There is no doubt this is a very special school with fantastic facilities and fantastic teachers who make all the difference. It's just a shame that every school in the country cannot be like Bolton School.

  • Two of our children have very generous bursaries to study at Bolton School and we are grateful for those. It has provided them with many opportunities. The school is for people from any background, not just the wealthy.

  • 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.
