GSA Schools Lauded At Independent School Awards
Two GSA schools have won prizes at this year’s TES Independent School Awards, which acknowledge and celebrate the work and commitment of independent schools as part of UK education for all.
Bolton School was named Independent School of the Year award for its academic achievements as well as what the judges commended as its “impressive” outreach activities.
The TES said:
“At a time when many regional schools have struggled to survive, Bolton has become a focal point for the local community, hosting a variety of theatre productions and public talks while acting as the northern school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) hub for both modern foreign languages and physics.”
As well as a vibrant programme of interaction and partnership with local state schools, Bolton School has amassed a substantial bursary fund, as a result of which 1 out of every 5 pupils at the school receives financial support. Bolton School is currently fundraising to increase the fund from £20m to £50m.
