Arts and Sciences Enrichment Evenings

Bolton School organises and hosts a series of free, public lectures about diverse topics within Sciences and the Arts. These take place monthly during term time throughout the academic year and allow Bolton School pupils, students from the local area, and interested members of the public to enjoy talks and lectures on an engaging variety of subjects.

Previous speakers include Dr Suzie Imber (Associate Professor in Space Physics and winner of Astronauts: Do You Have What it Takes?), Dame Evelyn Glennie (virtuoso percussionist), Tomasz Schafernaker (meteorologist and weather presenter), Dr Michael Scott (classicist), Jeff Ralph giving the Royal Society of Statistics William Guy Lecture and Dr Suzannah Lipscomb (historian).


The Girls' Division Great Hall is used as the venue for the events, which take place in the evening. Refreshments, provided by the school, are served beforehand in the Riley Sixth Form Centre.

Members of staff act as the coordinators for academic enrichment, one for Sciences and one for Arts, and are responsible for arranging the speakers and organising the events.

Pupil Involvement

Pupils from Bolton School and from the local community are invited to attend the lecture series.


The evening events take place once a month during term time (September to May).
