To mark the 100th Anniversary of the Foundation, a commemorative publication, titled The Best of Both Worlds, has been published.

The Best of Both Worlds tells for the first time the interwoven story of two Schools which share a common vision and heritage, and a single remarkable site. Beautifully illustrated, with both newly commissioned and archive photography, the book charts the evolution of the Bolton School Foundation since its endowment by Lord Leverhulme in 1915 and show how it remains true to his founding ethos of opportunity for all – regardless of means, background or gender.

Featuring personal accounts by teachers and Alumni of both Divisions, the book explores daily life at the School, its grounding in the local community, and adventures at Cautley, Patterdale and beyond. Rediscover the individuals, events and architecture that have helped shape the School and its spirit – and a unique place which truly reflects the best of both worlds.

The Best of Both Worlds is a permanent record of the last one hundred years of our School, and we would be delighted if you would like to become part of it.  To purchase your copy of the book, please visit our online School Merchandise store; copies can also be purchased in School, from the Development Office.
