Bolton School Sixth Form Girls

Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form

Welcome to our Sixth Form. I believe it is an exceptional one.

The Sixth Form Experience encompasses academic, extra-curricular and social activities. Our aim is twofold: to help you achieve the best possible academic qualifications whilst giving you every opportunity to develop as a person. In short, we aim to give you the best possible preparation for the future.

Each year the vast majority of pupils in Year 11 of the Girls' Division move into the Sixth Form but we also welcome a significant number of students from other schools. You will find this a warm and friendly place and you will quickly settle into the Sixth Form. I can guarantee that these will be two of the most important and memorable years of your life.

Our students are a lively and diverse group of people. We draw students from a wide range of backgrounds. We welcome about twenty new sixth formers into the Girls’ Division every year from a variety of other schools, bringing new perspectives and a particular vibrancy into the senior year group. Each new girl is allocated a tutor group "buddy" to give her as much support as possible, and is invited into school before she officially joins Year 12. All new students quickly become integrated into the school community and make strong, lasting friendships.

The best way to truly appreciate our School is to come and visit us. Please join us at our Sixth Form Open Evening which takes place in the Autumn Term each year. Failing that, you can always find out more about our Sixth Form by contacting me or by arranging a personal visit to the School.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
