What the school says...

We offer academic excellence at one of the North's pre-eminent schools; outstanding facilities and resources set in 32 acres of grounds; strong extra-curricular and pastoral programmes; an emphasis on developing the whole person; and an inclusive, caring and friendly environment. This is a single-sex school but there are opportunities for co-educational activities with the adjacent Bolton School Boys' Division.

Full fee bursaries from age 11+ and our coach service covering 22 routes ensures pupils are drawn from a wide geographical area.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


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

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmistress

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.
