A Warm Welcome from the Headmistress

New Digital Prospectus

Ahead of our Open Evening on Thursday 16 November (6.30pm for external candidates and 6.45pm for current students) why not take a look at our new digital Girls' Division Sixth Form prospectus.

Head of Bolton School Girls' Division, Sue Hincks

We believe that the Sixth Form years should be the highlight of your School life!

Our Sixth Form is a fun, vibrant and diversified community in which everyone is involved. You will have the opportunity to explore in depth new areas of study and to develop a range of skills and personal qualities through participation in the school’s extensive range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities. We want you to achieve your full potential, and to prepare successfully for transition to the demands of independent study at university.

With over 200 students in the Girls’ Division alone, we are able to offer a broad range of academic opportunities and an exceptional programme of extra-curricular and enrichment activities. Increasingly, universities and employers are looking for strong interpersonal skills, leadership and evidence of participation in activities outside of the classroom. We ensure that our Sixth Formers have a myriad of opportunities to develop their talents, skills and interests. At the same time, the Sixth Form is small enough for every student to be known, respected and supported as an individual.

Class sizes are small and the teaching is excellent. As a consequence, standards are extremely high and each year our AS and A Level results are among the best in the country. The vast majority of our students go on to obtain places at their first choice university, whether in the UK or abroad. Indeed, a recent independent report by the Sutton Trust placed the Girls’ Division in a league table of the top 100 schools recording the proportion of higher education applicants accepted at highly selected universities.

We certainly provide every opportunity for you to realise your full potential. We hope that you decide to take up the offer.
