"Bolton School was such a large part of my life. I can safely say that I would not be doing what I do for a living if it wasn’t for the vibrant arts scene at the school and the encouragement that I was given."

Neil Eckersley, Former Pupil and Theatre Producer

Old Boys' Golf Provides Bursary Boost

Thursday, 07 October 2010

Old Boltonians and friends enjoyed some sublime weather as they played out their annual President's Golf Day at Bolton Golf Club.  Sixteen teams took part in this year's fundraiser and over £3,000 was raised for the School's Bursary Fund.  Each team paid an entry fee to the competition and the money raised is further boosted by sponsors, advertisers and donors of prizes.

Since the first Golf Day in 2006, more than £20,000 has been raised by the Old Boys, which goes towards paying the fees for the next generation of deserving pupils. 

Last year, over £1.8m was spent on bursaries at the School and over 300 pupils currently receive fee assistance; of these, over 100 pupils study for free.
