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 Bolitho welcome.
