Bolton School Infants
Book Illustrates History of the Girls' Division
Pride in the Past; confidence in the future
A new book by Bolton School Archivist and Governor Eric Fairweather offers a full chronological history of the Girls' Division.
The 164-page book was produced at the request of the Headmistress, Sue Hincks, to mark the centenary of the Girls' Division at Chorley New Road in 2015, and records the history of the school from its formation as Bolton Day School for Girls in 1877. Split into thirteen chapters, each one detailing a different Headmistress's time at the School and opening with a chapter on the state of girls' education in the mid 19th century, the book and its illustrations offer a fascinating glimpse into the Girls' Division's past.
The book is available to purchase on the School Merchandise Shop for £15.00.
