What The Good Schools Guide says..
‘It’s no ivory tower,’ one parent explained, ‘and nor should it be. After all, we want our children prepared for the wider world.’ Many pupils from industrious business families, and it’s not unusual.....

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.
What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2011, Miss Sue Hincks (40s), a graduate of Magdalen College, Oxford, where she achieved a first in modern languages and history. Previously deputy head at The King’s School, Worcester. She enjoys choral singing and walking and is a keen theatre-goer.
This is her first all-girls' environment; she says she is thoroughly enjoying working with such intelligent and feisty girls. Feels that Bolton needs to regain its place alongside the single sex heavyweights in Manchester and wants a school that is very academic but has breadth, and where children leave with fond memories of good times had. Parents tell us she hasn’t been afraid to take ownership of the school, and girls sing her praises for attending nearly every school event, including Saturday morning sporting fixtures.
Special Education Needs
The School has some experience of catering for pupils with a range of disabilities, medical conditions and other special needs. For each pupil meeting the academic criteria for admission, the School will make reasonable adjustments so that any pupil with a disability is not put at a substantial disadvantage compared with any pupil who has no such disability. The School will also do all that is reasonable to detect and deal appropriately with a learning difficulty which amounts to a 'special educational need', although our staff are not qualified to make a medical diagnosis of conditions such as those commonly referred to as dyslexia, or of other learning difficulties. Remedial teaching provided by the School may be charged as extra.
