What says..

Ambitious project of designing, building and launching a hot air balloon aptly illustrating that the sky literally is the limit for Bolton School girls. School is well represented across the region in athletics, lacrosse, netball, swimming and rounders with its fixture lists showing win after repetitive win in all sports for all years. Two current students are signed to Everton and Manchester City girls' football teams. Drama is very popular and having a purpose-built theatre to stage school productions inspires even the most reticent thespians.

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.

A year in France convinced her to take up teaching and, after a PGCE back in Oxford, she started in a Peterborough comprehensive followed by spells at Marlborough College and Gresham's School in Norfolk. She was appointed deputy head of The King's School (first woman to hold this post), before taking her current role. Enjoys choral music and drama, sharing these passions with students everywhere she has taught.

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.
