Bolton School has a long and distinguished history of providing an outstanding all round education.

We have high aspirations for all our boys and provide an environment in which they can achieve them. An education at Bolton School will enable your son to identify and cultivate his own special interests and talents, develop a sense of intellectual curiosity and achieve excellent academic results.

Ours is a vibrant community where your son will be happy and make life-long friends. He will become a confident, eloquent and considerate young man, who will be well prepared to make his way in the world and make a difference for good.

Our website pages can only offer a glimpse of what we can offer your son. We would be delighted to provide you with a tour of the school, so that you are able to see at first hand what a truly exceptional education Bolton School provides.

Mr Philip Britton, MBE, MA, MEd, FInstP
Headmaster, Bolton School Boys' Division


  1. RT @BoltonJnrGirls: A very respectable overall 2nd! A difficult match against AEGS in the final. 15-9 final score. Well played girls @BoltonJnrGirls https://t.co/ejGvGIgAF7 about 23 minutes ago
  2. Iby has an important challenge that the young people learn to treat people as people rather than label groups, listen as well as talk and learn the lessons of the past for the future https://t.co/Jt5zLp6MaM yesterday
  3. A powerful account by Iby Knill of her first hand experience of Auschwitz this afternoon. Y9 and 10 boys, as well as some from 11-13, ended with some very good questions yesterday
