"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."

The teachers as a whole at Park Road Junior Boys' School combined seriousness and helpful amiability in equal measure - just what I, in my later years, would ask of any teacher. The best thing I can say of the school was that it worked. It embedded in me habits of reading and thinking as well as an enduring curiosity about just about everything. It provided, in the highest sense of the phrase, a liberal education.
