A Warm Welcome from the Headmistress

Mrs Lynne Kyle

Welcome to the Sixth Form section of the Girls’ Division website!

Sixth Form is a time of transition from GCSEs to life after school, and as such provides exciting opportunities for focussed learning and personal development. Regardless of what your chosen path after A Levels will be – whether it be further study at University or elsewhere, an Apprenticeship, the world of work or a Gap Year – the skills you acquire during your time at Bolton School will equip you for the next step.

The range of subjects on offer is vast, enabling students to choose from a hugely diverse range of combinations. Class sizes are small and students are taught by subject specialists. Sixth Form students here also benefit from a joint Sixth Form Centre (the Riley Centre) whilst retaining single-sex lessons, thus enjoying the best of both worlds. 

In addition to the focus on academic development, the variety of extra-curricular activities on offer is exceptional. Leadership opportunities are a particular feature of Sixth Form life and students are also supported in a range of volunteering activities, which we are very keen to encourage them to take part in. The development of key “employability” skills is a particularly important component of their preparation for life after school, and to that end our carefully-designed Curriculum Enrichment Programme ensures that each individual student follows a path tailored to their particular needs. The continuing emphasis we place throughout the school on pastoral care is evident in the Sixth Form as we support our students through the process of applications, interviews and examinations with skill and expertise.

At the end of Year 13, pupils automatically become members of the Bolton School Alumni Network, and through this they are able to connect with hundreds of former Bolton School pupils in their chosen field, thus providing them with unparalleled networking and career opportunities. Members of the Alumni Network also come into school to share their experiences of life after Sixth Form and to offer advice about the ever-changing world of work. 

Our experience, knowledge and targeted guidance enables us to provide our students with the best possible preparation for the challenges that lie ahead. Please visit us to discover more about what we can offer you.

I look forward to meeting you. 

Lynne Kyle
Headmistress, 2021-22
