The Best of Both Worlds

The Best of Both Worlds
The Best of Both Worlds

The Best of Both Worlds marks the 100th Anniversary of the Bolton School Foundation. The large, colourful hard back tells for the first time the interwoven story of two Schools which share a common vision and heritage, and a single remarkable site. Beautifully illustrated, with both newly commissioned and archive photography, the book charts the evolution of the Bolton School Foundation since its endowment by Lord Leverhulme in 1915 and shows how it remains true to his founding ethos of opportunity for all – regardless of means, background or gender. Featuring personal accounts by teachers and Alumni of both Divisions, the book explores daily life at the School, its grounding in the local community, and adventures at Cautley, Patterdale and beyond. Rediscover the individuals, events and architecture that have helped shape the School and its spirit – and a unique place which truly reflects the best of both worlds.
