Bolton School is a large, thriving, academically selective school, situated in an attractive, prosperous part of Bolton and with easy access to some of the nation’s finest cities and countryside. Together, the Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions offer pupils single sex education in a co-educational environment – ‘the best of both worlds’.
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. Serving a wide area of the North West through 20 coach routes, the School has for many years offered some form of fee assistance to a substantial proportion of its pupils. At present, 1 in 6 boys have fee assistance. 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.
The present Junior School teaching staff consists of eight full-time teachers, three part-time teachers and two teaching assistants. They are supported by the Deputy Head, as well as one full-time and four part-time secretarial and ancillary staff. One unusual aspect regarding the staff is the focus upon specialist subject teaching which applies throughout Year 5 and Year 6, to a large extent in Year 4 and to some extent in Year 3. The School is also fortunate to have a large number of specialist teaching rooms. The loyalty, commitment and dedication of the staff ensures that the strong academic programme is richly complemented by an unusually wide range of extra-curricular activities. There is strong co-operation with the Senior School, especially with the ADT, PE and Music departments, where the Junior School has access to the expertise of Senior School staff, in addition to having its own specialists. The Junior School has an outstanding reputation in ADT, sport and music.
