At Bolton School we help every girl discover her unique talents and strengths. Our staff are committed to developing in each girl the love of learning, creative independence and academic self discipline which will enable her to achieve excellent examination results. Our aim is to inspire in our girls the attributes, skills and values which will enable them to make informed choices, become responsible and principled citizens, enjoy successful careers and achieve personal fulfilment.

We understand that the best learning takes place when girls feel cherished, understood and secure. In our friendly and respectful, single sex environment, girls of all ages and backgrounds are free to relax and enjoy each other's company without feeling self conscious. They forge strong friendships to support and sustain them throughout their lives. They also have the opportunity to get to know members of the Boys’ Division through participation in extra-curricular activities alongside them.

Girls at Bolton School recognise how lucky they are to enjoy all the advantages of a supportive and inspirational educational environment with its superb facilities and exceptional range of extra-curricular activities; they value the importance of ‘giving back’ through participation in community action programmes, locally, nationally and abroad.

The best way to appreciate our school, is to visit us. The girls are terrific ambassadors and would love to show you their magical, uplifting surroundings as well as talk to you about the exceptional range of opportunities offered to them.

Withington Girls' School
D Girls 7-18, Greater Manchester

Withington is a leading day school for 720 girls aged 7-18 in which some of the best academic results in the country are attained within a lively, happy and caring environment. Our outstanding record of achievement is complemented by extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities and special attention is paid to pupils' personal, spiritual, moral and social development.

Withington Girls’ School was founded in 1890 by a small group of eminent and far-sighted Manchester families who wanted the same educational opportunities to be available for their daughters as were already available to their sons. In keeping with the Founders’ wishes, the School has remained relatively small, with approximately 725 pupils; 155 in the Junior School (Years 3 – 6), 405 in the Senior School (Years 7 – 11) and 165 in the Sixth Form. The Head of Withington Girls’ School is a member of both the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA) and the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC).
