School Ranked in top 100
Saturday, 04 September 2010
Bolton School Girls' Division has been placed 82nd in a league table of independent schools based on the 2010 GCSE results, as released by the Independent Schools Council. 39.48% of all grades were A*s and 73.57% of grades were either A* or A. It places the school amongst a handful of high-achieving independent schools in the North of England.
Headmistress, Mrs Gill Richards, said: "I am really pleased that our students have, once again, performed so well in their GCSEs; the results reflect how hard they and their tutors have worked. It is good to be continually placed in the top 100 schools and we have maintained this consistency with our 79th placing in the Daily Telegraph's league table for A level results. However, it needs to be said that academic league tables reflect only part of the Bolton School story as our offer encompasses a wide variety of extra-curricular and social activities which helps build rounded, self-confident young people."
The Boys' Division also performed exceptionally well and were placed at 148th in the table. 33.28% of grades recorded were A* and 65.01% were A* or A.
