Bolton School: Where Children Flourish

A Flying Start

Every year, up to 75 girls and boys set out on their school and, ultimately, life journey when they join the Reception Class at Bolton School Infants’ School. A significant proportion will move up from the School’s own Nursery or Pre-School Class for 3 and 4-year olds, but many are new to the School. Whatever path lies ahead for them, their parents know that they are giving them the very best start in life as they enjoy the fun, creativity, resources and learning that takes place in the Infant School where the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is consistently ranked as “outstanding” by the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate (ISI).

The Next Steps

After three years at this exceptional, co-educational Infant School, pupils move up to either the Junior Girls’ School (ages 7-11) or the Junior Boys’ School (ages 7-11) and then on to the nationally renowned Girls’ Division or Boys’ Division, both of which include their own Sixth Forms. At this point, they are joined by many more pupils from across the region. Like the EYFS findings, the latest ISI reports awarded both Divisions with the top mark of “excellent” in all categories.

Exceptional Opportunities

Bolton School’s impressive buildings and grounds

As an academically selective independent day school, there is a clear focus on stretching and challenging every pupil. Students reach their full potential through exceptional pastoral care, a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities, regular visits to the School’s outdoor pursuits centre, volunteering and foreign travel. The School has a national reputation at sport and offers a rich variety of options in the creative arts. There are activities to suit all needs and tastes. Pupils can choose from over 100 clubs and societies to join in each Senior School.

The curriculum is delivered by a highly qualified, experienced and dedicated teaching staff, who create an industrious and supportive environment where pupils are motivated to learn. Annual GCSE and A level results place the School amongst the best independent schools in the North and often within the top 100 nationally. The vast majority of students go on to their first choice university and there is a regular flow of sixth formers to highly competitive courses.

Finding Out More

If you are interested in finding out more about what the School offers, there are regular open events and taster sessions. The next such event is a Primary Division (ages 3-11) Open Evening on Thursday 27 April from 4.30pm-6.30pm. If you would like to register to attend or have an interest in enrolling your child in the Infant School (ages 3-7) or one of the single-sex Junior Schools, you should call Mrs Gore on 01204 434754.
