With 2,300 students on site, Bolton School is one of the largest independent day schools in the country.  It is situated a mile or so from the town centre in a pleasant wooded campus, surrounded by 32 acres of playing fields. Two adjoining and similar buildings house the Boys’ and Girls’ Senior Schools, each under separate Heads and each providing a traditional academic education from the age of 11 years. There are also separate Junior Departments for boys and girls from the age of 7 and a coeducational Infant School and Nursery.

 

Entry to the Junior and Senior Schools is by competitive examination and interview.  Interest in the School remains very strong and numbers have increased in the senior school in recent years. Bolton School selects on academic ability, with around three applications per place in the Boys’ Division. Public examination results are excellent, and despite the increased competition for university places, a large number go to their first or second choice university. At GCSE, over 60% of results are at grade A or A*. While the academic work of the two senior schools is largely separate, some joint working exists in the Sixth Form and there is considerable co-operation in extra-curricular activities.  We seek to achieve the best of both worlds: mixed activity and single sex teaching.

 

The School serves a wide area of the North West through over 20 coach routes bringing students to the school. We are committed to bursary funding, with 1 in 5 at the school supported financially and 1 in 10 on a free place. Social mobility is important to us and a key feature of the school. The school prides itself not only on its academic tradition, but on the immense range of other activities which are vigorously pursued both in and beyond the school day. We have just completed an impressive development of new facilities and refurbishment.  A new Infant School and extended Boys’ Junior school was opened in summer 2009 and a new Girls’ Junior school building opened in 2010. The new, joint sixth form centre, the Riley Centre, opened in the summer of 2013. Following this, attention will focus on our sports facilities. 

 

The School operates its own salary scale, which is related to, but enhanced beyond, the National Teachers’ Scale.
