We were not able to hold our usual open events in the Summer Term and the likelihood is that our Autumn events will be disrupted too.

Boys' Division Senior School

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.
