Bolton School Senior Boys

Teenage Journey

The Teenage Journey series is aimed at providing parents with a wide range of topics and expertise covering the different aspects of raising teenage boys. Expert speakers both from within Bolton School and from elsewhere will talk about issues such as adolescent mental health, diet and exercise, homework and revision skills, relationships, drugs and alcohol and social media. Recent speakers include Dick Moore from the CWMT, Teenagers Translated, Mark Cowling from Third Space Bolton and Bernard Strutt from the University of Manchester.

Recent attendees at these talks have said:

"I just wanted to express my thanks for the excellent talk yesterday evening. The opportunity to gain insight and learn so much about mental health and wellbeing, was absolute gold, and I really appreciated the chance to listen and enjoy such a valuable, authentic and fascinating presentation. I feel more able to support both myself and my children through the forthcoming challenges. I'm new to Bolton School, and I understand speakers and presentations similar to this are offered regularly. I really feel that they are a huge asset." 

"Jeremy’s presentation was both inspirational and engaging. He dealt with serious issues that we could all face in a thought provoking and entertaining way. He’s great to listen to. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
