Open Days and School Dates

Open Days

Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions in life - for both parents and pupils. We believe that ours is a special and unique environment in which pupils can realise their full potential. We would normally say that our words are no substitute for the real thing and encourage you to to fully appreciate our School by visiting our campus. However, this year is a little different and, instead of our usual large-scale open events, we will be running a broad range of virtual events that will hopefully give you a flavour of what life is like at Bolton School.

All of our events are subject to government advice and guidelines surrounding Covid-19 and we reserve the right to cancel or rearrange if circumstances change.

Personal Tours

You can still arrange a private tour of any of our schools, from Nursery to Sixth Form, during term time. These tours will be socially distant and are subject to current Covid-19 guidance. Find out more and see a list of Bolton School contacts here.

The Boys' Division will run a limited number of family tours during the weeks of 12 and 19 October 2020. See this page for more information, or click here to book a place. 

We ask that visitors over the age of 11 wear a face covering during the visit. If anyone in your household displays symptoms of Covid-19 please contact us to rearrange your tour.
