Bolton School Senior Boys

Over 600 Families at Open Morning

This year's Open Morning was one of the busiest on record across the campus. Over 600 families visited the co-educational Nursery and Infant School, the Junior Girls' and Junior Boys' Schools and the Senior Girls' and Senior Boys' Schools. Families came from Bolton, Bury, Preston, Rochdale, Oldham, Warrington, North Manchester and Wigan with some travelling from as far afield as Ormskirk, Blackpool, the Ribble Valley and South Manchester.

The sun shone and there were many engaging and interactive sessions in classrooms and labs. The Headteachers all gave well attended presentations about their schools and were, in many cases, abley assisted by pupils who also spoke about their love of Bolton School. Alumni and Parents' Associations of the School were also on hand to offer their reflections on the School. There was an MFL European Cafe in the Sports Hall where Sixth Form students waited on tables and the School's joint bands provided a musical backdrop. The School's outdoor pursuits staff, including those from Patterdale Hall and the School's sailing boat, Tenacity of Bolton, were also on hand in the Sports Hall. Visitors were given guided tours by pupils where they met subject teachers in classrooms and learnt about all the extra-curricular activities that are on offer.  

You can watch a slideshow of photos from the day here.
