"The best thing I can say of the school was that it worked. It embedded in me habits of reading and thinking as well as an enduring curiosity about just about everything."

Athletics

Rapidly growing in popularity, this summer alternative has seen success both locally and regionally. Using our grass track, field event provision at the school and local tartan tracks, a number of long-standing records have been broken in recent times.

The School is now very competitive within the local area with teams winning their age group in the Bolton Championships. Individuals have won their events at the Greater Manchester Championships and gone on to represent the county at the North of England Championships.

With curriculum instruction and two lunchtime clubs, this enables more and more boys to find athletics to be an enjoyable summer activity and to achieve success on a personal and representative level.
