Bolton School Senior Boys

Trips, Camps and Journeys

As with its extensive extra-curricular activity programme, Bolton School has an enviable reputation for broadening the education of its pupils through school visits, camps and expeditions.  Some trips form an integral part of the taught curriculum, including an annual residential visit to our outdoor pursuits centre at Patterdale Hall. Others take place at weekends or during holiday times.

The School runs a wide programme, covering a multitude of interests and destinations. The various expeditions are led and staffed by academic teachers, but expert instruction is provided where appropriate. Involvement of the School Scout Troop and Bolton School Outdoor Pursuits extends the programme yet further.

The programme of trips is always published two years in advance, so that pupils and parents alike are able to have as complete a picture as possible of the trips on offer. With over 60 foreign and residential visits to seventeen different countries, there is plenty to choose from.
