Impact Statement

We run the Bolton Book Award which involves 150 local children reading from a suggested list and then writing blogs/voting on the books via the internet. Many local schools attend the launch and even more attend the Final Day, when the shortlisted authors give talks to the visiting pupils and the winning book is announced.

Our sports tournaments attract over 100 participants from local primary schools.

Our students help out in a number of primary and secondary schools in areas with children from poorer socio-economic backgrounds.

Our monthly enrichment lectures enable senior school children and young people from local state schools to hear top flight speakers free of charge: these are advertised to all Bolton secondary schools.

The Headmistress is a Trustee of a state Academy providing alternative provision in Bolton; the Head of Sixth Form, Head of EYFS and Head of Geography are all state school Governors.

We are currently developing Girls in Science days in tandem with Siemens.

Bursaries & Scholarships


Financial assistance is available to those families with pupils entering Bolton School Girls’ Division or Boys’ Division from ages 11 through to 18. Currently, one in five pupils receive Bursary-assisted places.

The awards are based on the child's performance on the Entrance Testing Day and the degree of assistance required. The latter is based on an annual declaration of income and assets. The Bursary will continue for every year in which your child remains at the School. However, the amount to which you are entitled is re-assessed annually.

Parents whose income is less than circa £20,000 may be offered full remission of fees. Those parents whose income exceeds circa £80,000 will not qualify for assistance.

Bursary support is also available to students who apply to join the Boys' or Girls' Division Sixth Form. We award bursaries after consideration of family income and a student's academic merit. In order to help us ascertain the academic potential of students applying for a bursary we will require them to sit a cognitive test administered by the School.


A number of new Scholarships are available to pupils entering either the Girls’ or Boys’ Division in Year 7. These generous Scholarships are not means-tested and are awarded to those pupils who, we believe, will make a strong contribution to the academic and wider life of the School.  

The Scholarships are offered at the discretion of the Headmistress or Headmaster following the Bolton School Entrance Examination and Interview.

Separately, half and full organ scholarships are available in the Boys' Division only.
