New Headmistress for Girls' Division
Friday, 11 March 2011
The new Headmistress of Bolton School Girls' Division will be Miss Sue Hincks who is currently Senior Deputy Head of The King's School, Worcester.
She will take up her appointment in September 2011 when the current Headmistress, Mrs Gill Richards, retires from the helm of one of the most successful independent schools in the country.
Sue Hincks obtained a First Class Honours Degree in Modern History and Modern Languages, from Magdalen College, Oxford. She remains a passionate historian and Francophile, as well as enjoying the theatre and walking in the hills.
Sue said: 'I am honoured and delighted to lead the Girls' Division. The School has an outstanding reputation and was ranked as the top school in the North of England in the new league table of pupils' performance in traditional GCSE subjects. Academic excellence is complemented by an incredible array of extra-curricular opportunities, which help girls realise their full potential and build successful careers. The recent completion of a new Infant School and Junior Girls' School and the plans for the building of a stunning new Sixth Form make this a very exciting time to join the School.'
The Chairman of Governors, Michael Griffiths, commented 'Sue was outstanding during the recruitment process and the Governing Body was unanimous in their choice. We are all very excited for the future of the Girls' Division under Sue's direction'.
