Welcome to the website of the Bolitho School.
The Bolitho community is dynamic and vibrant. We uphold the values
of a traditional education whilst, at the same time, engaging in
innovation appropriate to education at the start of the 21st Century.
Our purpose is to provide an outstanding education for children,
supporting them in their passage to adulthood by developing character
and intellect within a small community in which each individual
is cared for and valued equally. We believe that education should
be exciting, uplifting and liberating giving pupils a lifelong appetite
for knowledge and understanding as well as preparing them for higher
education and their future careers.
After visiting Bolitho for the first time, parents and visitors
often comment on the welcoming and friendly atmosphere of the School;
they note how pupils are calm and at ease with each other and their
teachers. Visitors welcome the opportunity of looking in classrooms
and witnessing for themselves young people engaging with their teachers
and enjoying their learning.
Although we have a reputation for academic excellence regularly
coming in the top three of the league tables for Cornish Schools,
we are deliberately not an academic hothouse. We believe
that education should travel far beyond the confines of the syllabus
and the classroom. Minds are opened and spirits enriched by opportunities
for sport, the creative and expressive arts and the pursuit of learning
in all its diverse forms. Here we want pupils to feel secure, able
to explore something new, to take a risk, to challenge an idea and
have the space and support to develop their own initiatives.
We sincerely hope that you will consider the Bolitho School for
your child. We urge you to visit and look around the School, to
meet with current pupils, and to discuss the opportunities which
Bolitho could offer. We can assure you that you will receive a warm
