  • Reflections of a Former Head Girl

    Having joined Bolton School at the age of four, it’s difficult to imagine that I will soon be leaving. In my first assembly in Year 7, the Headmistress spoke of the difference between attending a school, and belonging to that school.

I have only been away from school for a week and already I am...
