Please note: In summer 2020, schools were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and exams were cancelled. Students were awarded grades based on exam board analysis of teacher predictions.

We have rigorous target setting and performance management systems for all of our activities. These are kept under constant review by the Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body. This rigorous approach makes sure the high standards we have come to expect at Eden Boys’ Bolton are constantly maintained and enhanced.

Each student has a personalised learning plan designed to challenge and support them. Behaviour and attendance are monitored carefully. Early action is taken in any areas where a pupil’s progress is causing concern.

Parents also have an important role to play in ensuring their sons achieve their potential. They receive half-termly report cards and are required to attend performance review meetings which will cover their sons’ academic progress, attendance and behaviour. The sessions also set challenging, but realistic, targets for the boys.

The English Baccalaureate is made up of English, mathematics, history or geography, the sciences, and a modern foreign language. It is a measure that shows where pupils have secured a grade ‘5’ or above across the core of academic subjects at key stage 4. It is designed to enable parents and pupils to see how their school is performing.

Each year, over 90% of our students are entered for all of the qualifications needed for the English Baccalaureate.
