I Am Looking For

Thank You and Contact Us

We are extremely fortunate to have so many people who invest in our future and the future of our pupils. Between September 2014 and August 2018, we raised £5 million for the 100 Campaign for Bursaries, a truly transformational sum.  

Thank you so much to everyone who has given so generously to enable us to achieve this stretching target.  You can watch our two minute “thank you” film, celebrating this outstanding achievement, here.

During the last academic year, the School community made pledges and gifts totalling £1.3 million to the Bolton School Bursary Fund. This exceptional generosity enabled the School to spend £2.79 million on means-tested bursarial assistance during the 2017-18 academic year, supporting 342 pupils across the two Senior Schools.

We recognise the support of all of our donors in our annual Roll of Honour in our Giving Report, which you can read here or by clicking the image of the Giving Report below. 

Your donations have allowed us to maintain our position as one of the leading schools in the North of England and fulfil Lord Leverhulme's founding vision of providing an outstanding education to bright children regardless of their background or financial means.
